Concrete Countertops How To Training
For enCounter's Concrete Countertops there are three ways to get started: DVD, books and hands on training.
The following book is recommended:
Casting Concrete Countertops
Finally there is a simple book for do-it-yourselfers who want to undertake a small countertop project. Follow several countertop projects step-by-step through the process of molding, pour, and finishing. Projects include cast-in-place, pre-cast, and hand-packed. Doug Bannister demonstrates time-tested techniques and his breakthrough formulas for countertops that set up fast and stand up to quick finishing, installation, and long-term use. Years of experience can translate into a weekend project, like the kitchen and bathroom vanity projects illustrated in this wonderful book. The text and captions are presented in both Spanish and English. Written by Tina Skinner and Doug Bannister. 128 pages plus color photos.
Available on DVD or VHS, the enCOUNTER instructional video walks you through the concrete countertop process—mixing, forming, coloring techniques, sealing and more. This video is a “must” for contractors who are serious about concrete countertops.
