I’ve seen countertops made with melamine forms where the bottom (inside) of the form becomes the top of the countertop. A radiused edge can be achieved by laying in a nice smooth fillet of latex caulk on all inside corners of the form and allowing it to dry before pouring the cement. The smooth melamine surface creates a smooth top, but only if it is vibrated sufficiently to get rid of all the voids and air pockets. Of course this is only feasible if you have the means to MOVE a piece of concrete as large as your countertop into place after removing the forms. This technique cannot be done in place.
