@Puck -- Your post cracked me up. Pouring a concrete ROAD with automated placement machinery has absolutely NOTHING in common with concrete countertops, other than they both have Portland cement and water involved. It's a completely different set of skills required. Concrete counters cost $100/SF when done by professionals for a reason - it takes very specialized skills, and equipment, and a ton of experience, to come out with something that doesn't look completely amateurish. And that's whether you pour them upside down in forms (my preferred method) or try to cast them in place right-side up. Finishing, filling, grinding, polishing is the key to a professional job and trust me - it is NOT a walk in the park. Concrete is a finicky and unpredictable material that never does the same thing twice - which is why multiple experiences are key to a good outcome.
