Just for fun, I looked this up.
The weight of concrete is approximately 150 pounds per cubic foot, or 4,050 pounds per cubic yard. The formula for calculating the weight of concrete is: Length (in feet) x Width (in feet) x Thickness (in inches) /12 x 150 = weight (in pounds).
So, a tabletop 6’ x 3’ x 0.3’ (3.5 inches) is ~ 810 lbs. (367kg)

Might be tough to move around the shop, I would be certain of the positioning. It also seems to limit storage underneath.
