Description

Using the melamine sheet material and MDF sheet material from OPMAATZAGEN.nl, I made a white concrete kitchen top with a cast-in sink. I used the wood for the concrete formwork.

How did you proceed?

Formwork and mold

After After installing the kitchen cabinets, I immediately measured the project to see whether the formwork could be made without or with a template. This was not the case and I was therefore able to make the formwork directly on the cabinets.



For the formwork I opted for 16mm thick melamine sheet material. For the edge formwork I ordered the minimum width of 40mm. I was able to screw this into the head of the sheet material, making the thickness of the kitchen top 24mm. I used 16mm MDF sheet material for the mold. After gluing all the parts in place, I shaped the edges with an edge cutter. Finally, I finished the mold with three layers of epoxy.



Preparing and pouring concrete

After measuring the necessary recesses, drain basket and position of the sink, I prepared the formwork with the necessary sealant, hot-glue and release wax. Then I could pour the concrete with peace of mind.



The concrete

After pouring, I Let the sheet harden for 36 hours. The work was then ground and sanded and finished with a number of layers of 2-component polyurethane for intensive kitchen use.

What are the dimensions?

Long top with hob and sink is 3200 x 600mm. Short top is 950 x 600mm.
