Nothing weathers everyday spills or holds steady under the weight of your favorite bottled brews quite like a concrete-topped bar. Re-create this entertainment essential for a fraction of the cost of a store-bought design. The concrete countertop requires just a DIY form made from melamine boards, Quikrete Countertop Mix, and rebar for reinforcement. While the concrete cures, follow this comprehensive tutorial to assemble a sturdy base for the bar using iron pipe flanges and plywood. Even though the concrete countertop itself takes at least 48 hours to fully cure, you can complete all of the work in a day! When the concrete is ready, you can simply remove it from the melamine form, secure it to the plywood, and start serving up drinks.
