Arrow DIY: Making CONCRETE bathroom vanities and countertops

I have a feeling many members on this forum don't know who I am anymore... but in the past have been known for DIY's and fabricating. Thought I'd share my latest venture... I love showing people the possibilities with concrete and how beautiful it can be made when crafted.

Design and make the molds by hand







sealed, finished, and installed!

I've looked into this many times but never tried it.

Re: DIY: Making CONCRETE bathroom vanities and countertops

It looks like there's a valley draining on the under side of the faucets

Ask away!

The hidden drain... The beauty of the "slot drain"

It's a recessed slot that runs the entire width of the sink.

Looks awesome. What materials did you use to make the mold? If you have a quick DIY for how you built it, that would be even better. I'd definitely like to try making something like this, we are going to be remodeling our small bathroom this year and a sink like that would look awesome in there.
