I recently built a concrete coffee table for our new home. It's 4' x 4', so it's fairly big and extremely heavy. I thought i was finished until my wife asked me to grind it down to reveal more of the aggregates. I think I will do what i'm asked to do so the question I have is will it be more beneficial to grind it down while adding water or should I just get to grinding and not wet grind it? Is wet grinding faster?

Thanks,

Steve

Wet grinding is generally faster and has the added advantage of reducing wear on the grinding wheel/stone.
