Making Concrete Tools

co-tl1.jpg (118767 bytes) Concrete tools ready for the tiles.
co-tl2.gif (116160 bytes) The table is covered with polyethylene sheet then the entire concrete tool is covered with epoxy before the tiles are placed. 
co-tl3.jpg (159190 bytes) After the epoxy has cured the polyethylene sheet is trimmed from the back. More epoxy is added to seal out the grit from between the tiles and to improve the support for the tiles. Tiles that extend beyond the edge are trimmed with a tile cutter.

Togetherness is good but not so good to have rough grit near fine grinding.
