    While I'm generally all for DIYing it. Not so sure here.I think the main danger here is not

    The granite weighs about 13 pounds per sq. ft. The load is on the sides and back of the

    You can get a less caustic version at HD. It's lower in fumes also. The directions say to mix

    done with it....

    Interestingly, I found that HD sells a 6 panel steel slab door. It's 1/4" smaller than my
    existing door so I would have to make some modifications but maybe a good use of a 1/4 x 1-1/2
