When it comes to concrete countertops, things have really taken off lately. About a year and a half ago, I picked up a copy of "Concrete Countertops" by Fu-Tung Cheng and set out to make a concrete top for my tulip base I had rescued from a dumpster. While I highly recommend the book, it would have been nice to have some additional training first. Brandon Gore of Gore Design Co, is filling that void. I have been watching his business evolve over the last couple of years, and I can honestly say he is doing great things for the concrete design world. He has classes for everyone from the hobbyist to the top professional, as well as some great supplies. One thing I love about Brandon is that he always keeps a great green philosophy, using only things that are the most friendly to the environment. If you are looking for tips, or just some inspiration, make sure you check out his web site.
