Donna Roselyn : 2:25 "...mixing it in a mixing tray, using a hoe. It's helpful to have another person around..." I thought for a sec. he was talking about the girl, lmao

korej94 : 2:25 lmao "mix it using a hoe". It's a clip of his girl mixing it😂😂

Ricardo Martins de Oliveira : You can spread oil or grease on the pvc pipe and it will release incredibly easy from the concrete. Nice job!

Asher Asberry : 4:14 I'm the guy in the orange shirt with the beard

Dwight Stewart : This is awesome. this is exactly what im going to do to my new kitchen in June.

DRMR frbr : I am shocked at the price of the sink. you got to be kidding me. video is amazing all they way just shocked at the price, id expect to pay not more than 100$ on a sink. maybe its just that here, in Serbia, they are cheaper, or you picked a very expencivce one. Non the less, looking forward to the next video :)

yo momma : i like the idea. but should have put rebar around the sink cutout. now its gonna break in front of the sink. and should have been set down on blobs of liquid nails so it sits flush and can not rock around and break.and use your palm sander to vibrate the forms. not a saw! and dont forget to remove the sand paper before you vibrate.

Confused Ostrich : Using a hoe, lol I thought he was talking about the girl

Scott Nelle : I've noticed that you usually use molds of 2.5 inches or more. Is that just your aesthetic preference, or is there some reason that thinner concrete slabs made this way are impractical? Thanks!

718sFINEST : 0:35 is that a security tag on her pants? "oooohhhhh she stealin"

Kaleb Graham : Love how he said using a hoe and his sister was compacting the concrete

Jerome Walton : Nice looking job but wow. Mixing it on your floor and making a giant mess all over, not securing the tops to the cabinets, sanding after installation...should have planned out your job a little more

David Ferrer : love the open design of the kitchen so much inspiration :)

David Ferrer : is there a reason why you used the 5000 concrete and not counter top concrete ?

Mark : nice idea, but needs drawers. that wont stay neat for long and I don't like guests seeing all my stuff

Matthew Snell : Nothing like exposed end-grain on a bunch of Home Depot 2x4s. This transitional period where everyone who handmade their vintage stuff and are now trying to stay relevant with modern fixings aren't quite there yet.

Joe Towers : I am not handy by any measurement, so I won´t be doing this, but I really like the aesthetics of the kitchen. I might have to have somebody quote this for me. Thanks for the videos.

Rares Oance : 2:25 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Kyle Rogers : this is awesome

litch1374 : Hey quick question. I know Quickcrete sponsors you and I'm curious why you chose 5000 mix over their countertop mix. Was it an issue of what was available to you or did you like the look or functionality better? In the next day or two I'm doing a pour in place, outdoor concrete countertop and read reviews of Quickcrete's countertop on home depot and wondering if I should use 5000 instead.

Maeve Chen : Hi Ben, are you going to add a splashback at the sink? It's weird for me to see a kitchen with wood flooring and an untiled wall because I live in the tropics and that will rot very fast. Beautiful work by the way!

Edward Roscoe : Hi there, Can anyone recommend an equivalent of Quikrete 5000 that is available in the UK? Would be most appreciated. Kind Regards, Eddie

P Nwa : 2:25 using a hoe. She appears

Rick Lohre : General cost on this countertop project? Sans the sink and faucet.

Patrick Drury : just take the blade out of you're recip saw to get plenty of vibration...

Missy Evitt : What was the cost of the coutertops?

Atha S : !good idea

georgyboy2323 : Nice, but how long can it last in a kitchen? I fear the water of the sink...

Franklin Michael : If you do stain it can you clean it by sanding it down a little? And how much does it cost to build the countertops and the stands and sink and so on?

John G : is it possible to have a finish with no holes at all, and to feel almost like granite with sanding? Or is that kind of finish just not really possible with concrete? This looks great, I'm just curious if it could really rival the look of a polished stone.

Jason Johnston : Exactly what I needed to give me the confidence to tackle my kitchen project. I like how you simplified the process and were able to provide a general walkthrough.

Sirthinksalot : I like your videos, they are clear with nice music and voice overs. But is have a question; why did you let the concrete dry slowly? what will happen if it dried fast??

soft finesse : Good video, +1

Stefanie : YEEEEAAAAAHHHHH 👌👍

redtiger546 : nice breathing protection from your carcinogenic melamine dust

HOLD FAST : That turned out awesome. I've been wanting to make mine for way too long and keep putting it off. After seeing how these turned out as soon as spring gets here, I am definitely doing it. Thanks for sharing.

RetroWeld : 2 in one day! Nice!

Scott Haun : if you had the tools, next time would skip the pvc pipe for the faucet you just drill out the faucet hole?

Chantell Patrick : Home Made Modern how are your countertops holding up? Any cracks?

Android Gaming : i actually learned something from this on how you form your melamine so simple yet so effective

Roz Christopherson : Will cooking oil stain the concrete?

Jay Normandy : amazing

samisam88 : I would like to see more closer look of the counter top surface.. Did it came perfect or was there airbubles?

Samtagri : The steel meshes seem quite flimsy. Are you sure they do anything to the structural integrity of the concrete?

erik iverson : I know it helps to have an extra person around. Isn't that why you are using the hoe?

Ihsan Kibar : Amazing... I wonder what you do with all this stuff you make?? Like dont you guys already have stuff in your home :D

Donovan Gregg : Feel bad for those hardwood floors :(... spilled concrete and water all over them as they look to be unfinished?

Meeno Do : Hmm open shelves..... Good luck keeping your stuff dust free. We've evolved to cabinets for a reason.

pow shredder : And in the next vid we will show you how to replace our hardwood floor we destroyed.

mattetten : Nice project! But whats the advantage of adding water while curing?
