I’ve done it. I made mistakes, and will be able to do it better the next time I have to make them, but I am happy enough with the results that I got.

Contrary to the previous post, Quickrete makes an acceptable mix for countertops. Quickrete 5000 is plenty strong enough, and much cheaper than the “countertop” mixes. They do make a specific countertop mix, but it was a special order from Home Depot, significantly more expensive than the 5000, and not significantly better than the 5000.

The biggest mistake that I made was to not have any help available on pour day, that and I made my mix too dry for me to handle all by myself. Of course, I was pouring a whole kitchen at once, I did my bathroom by myself, and that wasn’t a big deal.
