Great product, May 11, 2014 5 stars
Pros
I have used this mold over and over and over again. I'm never disappointed in it's durability. It's sturdy and can take a beating if you forget to put mold release in it when you pour the cement!
Cons
none.
Other Thoughts
Since I sign my name and date the back of the stone, I put a piece of masking tape on the outside of the mold that says Bottom, so I know that when I sign it, it won't be upside down.

Pros
Inexpensive. Quick and easy to make gift.

I toss out the flimsy board that comes with it and cut my own MDF board that is twice as thick. I wish the frame was a little sturdier.

6" Square trivet, March 14, 2011 5 stars
Pros
I really like this for a quick make for a gift.
Cons
If your using stained glass for your mosaic, I recommend cutting a thicker piece of MDF for the substrate. While the one provided is OK for tile mosaics, it should be thicker for glass mosaics.
