I have some damage to the end of a slab that I would like to preserve with epoxy instead of cutting the damage off.
I have tried this before on small sample pieces and I am not getting the result I'm looking for. I want the finished result to be a clear epoxy fill that is smooth and level with the rest of the slab. I slightly overfill the void with epoxy so that when it settles in, it's pretty close to flush with the rest of the slab surface. When I go to sand it smooth to match the table surface, I am using 220 grit on an orbital sander and it just seems to make white and cloud scratch marks all over the epoxy, therefore making it unclear.
What is the best way to sand/smooth the epoxy down flush with the slab surface, yet maintain a crystal clear finish in the epoxy??
