Concrete Pool Deck

I was at a family barbecue and I noticed the large in-ground pool. When I took a closer look at the concrete deck I saw the details in the way it was created and I was excited to try and replicate it. I learned a lot from the whole process and quite enjoyed making the shape of metal piece. The concrete scrape curves aren't exact to the reference but I feel it gets the point across. As always feel free to give constructive feedback, as I am still learning as I go.

The shape of the metal piece. Made with a bunch of subtracts and many circles of various sizes.

The concrete lines created from smoothing out the concrete with a corrugated paddle. The Creased node provided a similar style curve shape, and I tried to get it to repeat in the same way as the reference.
