My project involved filling in a depression I cut into a black cherry log, filling it with rocks I had collected throughout my travels, and covering it with Mirror Magic so it appears filled with water. Many who view it, actually think it is water; turned out better than I expected. Must admit it took more product than I thought I needed, rather spendy,

I made a rustic table 2+inches thick and I was on the fence weather or not to spend the money on this product or simply lacquer it. If you are on the fence just buy this product! It is easy to apply and comes out crystal clear, smooth, and looks fantastic!

I used the product on a desk for my granddaughter so that it will last a lifetime. It went on as advertised, and when it dried it was everything I had hoped for, the finish looks like it came from a factory.

Great pantry coverage
I used this for a pantry counter which needs lots of washing. It is easy to apply (follow the directions!) and gives a great finish. It's been two years, and the finish still looks just fine.

I am not a big fan of bar finishes, but this stuff works fine where that is what is needed.

Mirror coat works as advertised. It is fairly easy to apply and looks GREAT....but, be sure you have sealed the top if using a porus material like reclaimed lumber. The directions called for this but I didn't do it and the mirror coat filled EVERY hole. Additionally, the 3 oz per square foot is the absolute minimum for coverage and I would recommend more if you have any doubts. Overall a great product and I would use again but follow the directions to the letter.

Rockler charged WAY more than other retailers
This product was about $20 more than other area brick and mortar stores in my area. I'm bringing it back.

I would not recommend this product for a beginner. It left bubbles even though I used a blow torch. Its hard to sand off.

I uses the product on a bar, put a coat down and I have some imperfections. Can I sand it down and reapply a coat? I have a finger print, and my son painted on it and I would like to sand down and make final coat flawless is that possible or what would you suggest?

How thick can I go with MirrorCoat when filling holes on a slab table top to stabilize loose wood material that would otherwise crumble away to form a bigger hole?
Mark P on Jul 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: you can go pretty thick, but keep in mind that this is a fairly thick liquid, not thin, so it will take time to fill such an instable area that you are talking about. I've never had any more than 1/4 inch straight thickness, but it should be fine. Keep in mind, the curing is an exothermic reaction, if you have a large volume in a small area, it will heat up significantly.
Do I need to seal a solid wood table before I apply the Mirror Coat, and if so, with what? 1-1/2" thick solid maple kitchen table that has been sanded down to bare wood with random orbital sander with 150 grit paper. Made from 4" individual planks fastened together lengthwise. All of the joints between planks are straight and tight without gaps.
James T on Dec 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Pre-sealing is not needed for this product, but a high quality polyurethane may be applied before the top coat. If you choose to use the poly, be sure to lightly sand the poly after it dries thoroughly with 320 grit before you apply the mirror coat.
Making hickory drop leaf table. want to fill knot holes some of which go thru top. can this product be used to fill holes, sanded and finished with clear poly?

I have some reclaimed wood made into a 2 inch thick table top. I sent earlier text asking how do you finish the edges. My second question is: some of the wood grain checkered/ popped up on the grain. Can I just pour the finish over it or do I need to glue down the grains that popped up?
David S on May 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There are a lot of ways to skin a cat of course. This sort of epoxy doesn't stick to most plastics like mylar, or the smooth side of packing tape. One thing you could do is tape the perimeter so that you have a fairly sealed edge. You want it to be pretty tight as this stuff isn't cheap. Then just pour the epoxy as they suggest, if you go deep enough, you will cover the checking and then popped up grain. In my situation, I had a 2x4 frame for a bench top with a birch plywood piece inset (2'x3') with a mahogany, 1 inch strip perimeter. This was all 1/8th inch below the level of the 2x4s, so I just filled it in.and then sanded the 2x4s down to the appropriate level.
When you are doing a table to Play~ how do you do the edges?
David S on May 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used this product on a desk top and did not use it on the edges, so I'm afraid I can't help you much. However, the product website was very helpful
Does this product build up heat?
Can I use it to cover things like plastic gift cards?
Hal P on Jan 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure what you mean. I used it to cover a wooden bathroom countertop. It withstands the use you’d associate with that very well. I’m not sure about embedding plastic items (aka decoupage). I’d be concerned that the plastic surface would repel it. I’d do some experimenting first.
will this adhere to metal? I am making a copper counter top and would like to clear coat/protect it.
John H on May 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is basically an epoxy so yes it will adhere to metal at least as well as most paints. I use an aluminum tray to mix in and once it is dry I throw the tray away because whatever is left of the epoxy and the stick I used to mix it are both stuck to the tray.
How well does this product adhere to horizontal parts of the project and is there any special technics in applying it. Can you apply it in stages? For instance do the top and then do each side one at a time?
B M on Apr 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is an epoxy so it adheres to anything that an epoxy would adhere to, but it starts out liquid with the consistency of a thick paint. That is what they mean by self-leveling. Anything thicker than a coat of paint and the epoxy will run settling to the bottom of whatever vertical surface you are trying to coat. I use it as a filler for acoustic guitars, applying it with a rag, and with that thin a coat it works well on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. It does not burn in like some finishes, but I have seen people apply it in stages and there was no visible line between the coats.
