cool, what epoxy are you using? my favorite is Norklad 100. 100% solids and doesnt bubble very much, very low VOC. Leggari products has good epoxy too.

Ive been practicing on a bunch of table tops going to do my kitchen counter tops this summer

I forget the name. I have it saved in my bookmarks. It’s some sort of counter top epoxy that makes no heat as it cures. Looked pretty easy to work with.

If you use a heat gun and just fan it very lightly, the bubbles rise and pop. You will get complete clarity; how often does that happen in our lives?

I think I would have gone LVP but the jury is still out..

How's the grout treating you?
I have no issue keeping it clean considering the tools and products I have available whenever I have the need to use them. I did once make the mistake of using an acid made for another purpose and caused the evacuation those unfortunates who once lived with me....
