The creation of a custom countertop it is a special project from beginning to finish. This present countertop was started in the middle of December with the building of a form constructed of laminate wood. Here is workshop participant Denise Aimar cutting the side pieces for the form.[photo by Sue Kirsch]
Here we can see the form, with the rebar cage tied to wooden support pieces, to keep it at a certain level within the concrete. We can see wooden cut-outs where openings for the sinks will be, as well as little wooden doohickies to leave spaces for water faucets etc.
More to come.
