Concrete counter tops re visited

Ive decided to try concrete counter tops , I watched some entertaing videos on the subject . I already made a 18x24 as a test and it turned out pretty good absolutely zero pit holes or craters .

I can get to the point of rough castings but was wondering about polishing , staing and sealing . is it best to stain first then polish and do you use a orbital sander or a grinder with sanding discs ? I have a rotozip angle adapter that takes sanding discs or do you need the 400 dollar wet sander etc? also what stains are preferred any certain brand ?

thanks .

This company has been on some diy shows before and have a neat pour in place system with the edge molds. They also have information about stains, sealants and colorants you can put in the mix.
