Concrete Patio Table (Part 4. Finished)

Amongst many other projects, the concrete patio table is finished. The surface was polished up through 800 grit, sealed with an experimental colloidal silica topping, and then coated with the soy-epoxy. I don't know how the silica densifier and epoxy will play together. We will have to wait and see.
A shot of the bottom. Since nobody sees this I wanted some kind of texture when people put their hands underneath.
The concrete was cast right-side-up and the glass and embeds we seeded into the surface and troweled in.
I rubbed down the epoxy with fine steel wool before waxing. Stainless steel tapcons secured the concrete to the base.
