    The wall/staircase is covered in leaves and hope to get pictures this week. This was our most recent project and should get final pictures tomorrow. Its not flagstone but similar to sandstone (tan) but lots of texture/character. Used the T190 to remove the concrete and excavate in a straight pass.....doesn't get much easier.

    Todd, what are you using to frame your concrete? I'm running out of options for good flexible framing, nothing seems to work....without looking like a Lays potato chip.

    This is just thin, cheap Lunon* (Loo-on)........can't spell that one. I think its $10 for a 4x8 and I rip it with a skill saw.

    I use concrete pins and screws to secure. Also, wet the wood on both sides and it bends easier.

    How are you securing it with screws if you're using steel pins? I've always had to wire tie it to the pins...

    They are "concrete pins".......they have holes up and down them for screws to go through....not solid and not rebar.

    1/4" Lauan plywood.....otherwise called 1/4" Mahogany.....used generally as an underlayment for vinyl flooring. Works well.

    if you want a more durable/re-usable flexible concrete from invest in some 3.5"x3/4" plastic trim board from home depot or similar. the initial investment is a little more, but they will last next to forever. they are more ridged and require less staked, natural form release.

    Bingo! This sounds what I'm looking for. I've tried the 1/4" mahogany, and hate it. I'll try and get my hands on the plastic trim board.
