    Love the channel. Wonderful way to exercise enginuity and frugality. But please do yourself a favor the next time you work with concrete, and wear a respirator.

    Wear gloves. It’s easier on the hands where they won’t be sore at the end of the job. Nice job.

    Well then when you start moving grass and dirt that really hard. Water it one day before you remove the dirt for a few hours will make all the difference in the world and for troweling u need a hand float and a finishing trowel to push the stones down then the slurry you can finish smooth just saying

    Next time put water in the mixer before the concrete so it won’t stick

    I was thinking of pouring a cement slab outside my kitchen sink to hookup a washing machine. All the plumbing and electrical hookups are inside the wall.
    Now all I have to do is figure out how to make an awning over it.

    Instead of sand could I do this over gravel? My friend wants another slab of concrete so her daughter doesn't have to park in a small gravel pit and it would be easier than removing all the gravel.

    Correction at 5:02....S/B "While this is CURING". Concrete cures, not dries. It's a chemical reaction. Sorry to be picky....nice job.

      You are so wrong....anyway good practice is to keep safe. What you don't realise is that issues manifest down the line with age so you are buggered.
