I was planning to do no exposed aggreagte but due to the repair I had to sand off the excess JB weld. I decided to sand/polish the whole this to expose it a little. You can see in the last picture.

I bought some armor ar350 sealer Hoping it will penetrate and make it stay dark. I haven't applied it yet Cause its been super rainy around here. But I will report back once I do.

I did make 2 mistakes when I made the bigger piece. First I did not have any draft angle on my sink knock out. This made it really hard to get out. Also I did not use the set control to slow down the cure. I should have cause by the time I mixed up my 4th bag the 1st bag was already setting up fast in the mould. I still got a good surface finish but i panicked and forgot the rebar around the sink. These 2 errors led me to break the end off when I was trying to get the sink knock-out removed.

After several colorful words I figured I should try to salvage before I scrap the whole thing. I ended up getting out the 5min JB weld and clamping the whole thing together. The color is really close to the concrete but def not perfect. In the end I decided to roll with it cause I'm lazy. And in the future if it bothers me I will re do it then.
Understand that, I waited about a week before I sealed ours. I was referring to once the counters dried. Of course everything dries lighter so I wish I would have mixed the color in a little darker but all is well. I also rolled with a few areas I was less than impressed with that I couldn't get fixed, but in the end I was like ehh its an outdoor kitchen and they are minor. It can be a little imperfect lol. Gives it character lol

The company I work for recently started designing outdoor kitchens in metal. These pics are from our showroom model. They are made out of all aluminum and stainless. I’m in the middle of planning one out for my pool now.

Been awhile since I posted.

I finished up the stone and electric but still need to finish the plumbing and the feet.. I built molds for the feet so I can make feet that will match the counter top.

For all of those looking at this build in the future. I highly recommend making the area where a large BGE sit just a little larger. Mine is 26 inches deep and just barely clears when I open the lid. It needs probably 2-3 more inches to be perfect.
