Papabe, Sorry for your apparent dissatisfaction. I was the only one that poked at you; everyone else offered a suggestion or asked for more information in order to better give you an answer. I think if your persevere, you'll find you'll get an answer that helps.

You said you used glaze in your first post. Your next post (#15 here) said "famouswood" from Lowes.
Lowes doesn't sell that brand. They do sell Famowood clear epoxy. A (pun intended) clear difference than a glaze product.
Link:Famowood Gallon Clear Epoxy
In first post you asked: "...I can't seem to get it even os smooth". Did you mean even or smooth?
Could you describe what the problem is? Bubbles? Too thin? Ripples?
Can't help if the question isn't clear or information provided isn't correct. This is a two-way street to get success; you have to play your part right as well. Remember, no one here can see your project or products you used.

How was the first glaze applied? Poured? Brushed? Rolled? Sprayed?

Don't worry about the ball bustin'. Just ignore them and seek out the responses which address your question. And, absolutely be prepared to answer some questions about your question.

New guy--you need to be more tolerant ---we come here for the enjoyment--and a certain amount of goofing around is to be expected--

You can bet you boots if your house was flooding there would be nothing but serious answers--

But really--a glazed wood block with no details---that will bring about a grin from most of us--

I'm a moderator here and I was tempted to jump in on the fun---

You on the other hand appear to be a bit short in the humor department--Mike---

Forgiven---I'll look this up---that product makes bubbles as I recall---I need to do some research

I wouldn't use a foam roller yet--that may cause more bubbles---someone her may have experience and will answer before I get back to you---Mike---

Is this the product? A two part pour on epoxy coating?GLAZE COAT High Gloss Epoxy Coating information

There is a video there showing the install application----I've never used this product---I have read up on it in the past---

Has any one here ever used this?

I don't know that product, but I've used epoxy resin before. It will never get you a smooth finish. Best is to apply it with a roller. Its purpose is to protect, not to look pretty. Once you have a good coat on (meaning the wood is now sealed), sand it smooth with a random orbital sander and apply a finish coat on top, like polyurethane, which does provide a smooth finish.

Now after it is good and dry sand it with 220 grit and recoat. Next resand it with a finer wet sand paper and give it another coat. Nice even smooth flow with your hard finishing material is key to a nice luster.
