I haven’t gotten a chance to use my granite yet, but what others are saying is true. Glass is expensive! Especially a piece big enough for a no 8. The tiles are small and the ceramic tiles that are long are not flat at all (I used a straight edge from the tool section at lowes to check). The counter tops also aren’t perfectly flat though. Some light was showing under my straight edge when I checked it over a length of 24 inches. However, the straight edge might also not be perfectly flat because it is made in China. If you want to go the counter top option call around to some local marble and granite installers, and they will have a big pile of cut offs to choose from for a very cheap price. My piece was $12 for a 6”x36~” piece.
