DVD 1- Building Concrete Countertops with Buddy Rhodes

This 80-minute instructional video takes you through all of the steps of building and installing your own concrete countertop, both pre-cast and cast-in-place, using Buddy Rhodes techniques and products. Watch Buddy hand-press a signature veined countertop upside down, or let national BR trainer Rich Rhoades walk you through fabricating a hard trowel countertop right side up, including mold-making, creating a sink-knock-out or polishing the de-molded project to perfection. Buddy's in-house technical support specialist Matthew Mondini will guide you through the details of templating and installation, sealing and waxing. Whether you are using it as an introductory lesson for your first time, or keeping it as a back-up after your training workshop, this DVD will support you in your own creative craftsmanship.

Profiled on HGTV's Modern Masters, and featured in magazines including Fine Homebuilding, Dwell, This Old House, Metropolitan Home, House Beautiful, and Sunset among many, Buddy Rhodes is one of the founders of the concrete countertop trend that is spreading across the country and beyond.
