Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Trendy and new, concrete countertops are growing in popularity for their versatility and durability. Cheng, one of the early innovators of concrete countertops, covers only one project but in enough depth and detail to allow confident DIYers to tackle other such projects. Aimed at beginners needing a lot of hand-holding, his instruction is understandable and clear. In contrast, Skinner's book is rather shy on instruction. It is primarily pictorial but runs through six different projects. Incorporating three projects and not novice-friendly, Rhodes's more advanced book, featuring authoritative instruction, has a magnificent gallery of examples.

Meet the Author

Originally a ceramicist with a craftsman's interest in architectural integrity, Buddy abandoned his clay and potter's wheel when he developed a way to meld the warmth and handmade quality of pottery with the strength, versatility, and architectural applicability of concrete. His extensive product development and practiced understanding of the material coincided with the growth of international interest in concrete as a widely available and sustainable material.
