Welcome to the forums!

I'll move you to "Concrete" for better response.

Smoothing dried Concrete


I bought this thing called a "rub brick" which i used to "grind" the landing I built for my stairs. Ideally I wouldn't have had to, but it was my first time working w/ concrete so It didn't come out perfect. It's not like sanding a door - there are certain things you just can't fix, but the rub brick does smooth it out a little.
