    Not like it's rocket surgery - pour and finish slab as per normal, after the initial set hit it with the wood float to bring excess slurry & fines to the surface then lay rough sawn pine/douglas fir/Oregon boards over the surface.

    Walk them in to stamp the grain. Lift, cure & stain.

    Even a concretor could do it ;)
