With that info, it seems like this is a natural micro-feature that's been filled with epoxy. Fabricators get creative every single day as they work to cut out/eliminate undesirable parts of slabs....

I lit up your link to YouTube in the first post.

The pics aren't clear enough for me to say definitively, but I do see the specks that make it appear as though it is a micro fissure that's been...

Welcome to the forum, Cher. :wave:

We’re a bit short on details to comment. So let me start by asking: Was this a ‘by the hour’ or a contracted price agreement?

Probably not a sound plan due to weak bond under the sheet goods....and if you suspect asbestos...sanding shouldn’t be considered. But before we go too far, can you tell me what “k5” is?...
