Made a concrete bar top. Top looks great I used melamine. Sides, not so much. Used lumber and it was a mistake. I rub it and it just dusts and flakes. What should I do? I want it to be smooth and not flaking.
There are two ways to make it smooth.Never done it, but i have some ideas. Obviously should have used melamime. Did you oil the sides of the form? How long did you wait before trying to smooth it? I think if you wait a week or two you can use diamond pads to polish it smooth, but you will expose the aggregate.
