When all the pebbles are in place a smooth layer of grout is poured over the pebbles in sand, then a thick layer of concrete is added to the depth of the mold, keeping each segment identically the same thickness.

Unsetting the mold

After concrete is set the wooded mold is pried off, the sand is washed off the base of the molded piece revealing the smooth pebble surface.
