I did some exposed aggregate stuff in high school. Made park benches, picnic tables, etc.

wow. I wish I could have learned that in high school.My classes all sucked. I'm learning a lot but its a nice unique hobby. A lot of people are like... you do WHAT with concrete? After they see the finished outcome, they don't complain one bit. They start asking me how much I would charge to redo their counters.

Those look amazing! Never thought of using concrete for some smaller projects. I was thinking of making a necklace pendant for my girlfriend out of concrete. Hmmmmmm The things you can do with Concrete!
