I could have used one today. I was in the kitchen pouring a wood/epoxy hybrid slab in a UHMW mold that I sealed with goop. Unfortunately, I neglected to allow the goop to fully cure. This became immediately apparent as the level of resin in the mold started to drop. For a moment, I thought that I was going to have to explain to my wife how ten ounces of blue and green epoxy got on the kitchen table and floor. Luckily, there was a package of paper plates in a nearby cabinet that saved my bacon.

Ive saved many table tops with that tray. I have about 40 of them. When one gets resin all over it, i throw it away!!
