Tip: After the corner has “set” for a few minutes (5-10 minutes), I found it useful to go along with my fingers and mold the concrete smoother. The concrete will be a bit drier by this time, but it will still be malleable, which is prime condition for pinching it and getting a corner you really like. Of course, you’ll be able to sand later on, so don’t worry about making it perfect.
Step 2: Sand the countertops with coarse sandpaper. Use 60- or 80-grit sandpaper to rough up your countertop. The idea is to scratch it so the concrete has something to “hold on” to. Clean and dry the countertop thoroughly after sanding before proceeding.
Here’s how you can figure out the right height for each area: prep surfaces need to be 3”-4” below the elbow so you can easily and comfortably chop, slice and dice. The cooking surfaces need to be 5”-6” below the elbow to avoid splashing hot oil at face level. Then there are also the low-level surfaces such as the area you use for rolling dough or kneading bread. These should be 8” below the elbow.
