Everyone contributes something—ideas and materials—to our concrete potluck. ” Draw a pattern by hand directly onto the Styrofoam sheet. Cut the pattern and lay the Styrofoam on top of the particle board.

Finish the mold by screwing the formwork onto the particle board. Fill the mold with concrete and reinforce it with chicken wire. Place some stones on the grill so it stays in place. Smooth the surface thoroughly. Now let the concrete cure for at least twenty-four hours. The grill is cast in the concrete, and the slab provides a roomy workspace.
