I am looking for the best clear epoxy and find so many I am not sure which way to go. I use System Three for my rockers etc, but it is not ‘Clear’. The project I have now I want a clear finish. Can anyone help?

Would MirrorCoat /Table Top Finish which is also a System Three Epoxy work for what you are doing?

It’s sold by Rockler.

I have used perfect Gloss with good results. Possibly all much the same in results

I made a tray in 2010 and used it there

I think from memory the boxes around the tray were done at the same time.

One can always count on Lumberjocks. Thanks for the response. I went out on a limb after falling for the commercial and ordered Ultra Clear Epoxy.
The reason I asked the question was I had ordered another brand and it is not ‘clear’ as I wonted. If I knew System Three had a clear coat I would have order it because of my past experience with their product. Time will tell if my impulse buying was correct; after all it is only money, time, effort and frustration while experimenting with new dreams.

Many advertise clear, but it you use it very thick you’ll find out it’s a light yellow. Post your results please.
