    Construction adhesive such as Liquid nails would be faster and better.

    Joint compound isn't tile adhesive.

    If you are encasing the entire top in epoxy resin, like a smooth clear top layer. Then yes, if the mud is all you have on hand to just keep everything in place while you pour the resin. It will do what you are looking for.

    There is a risk of detachment as the tiles adhere to the resin and part company with the table. You need an epoxy glue (idealy two part) that will bond dissimilar materials to make sure the tiles stay put.

    Epoxy resign IS an adhesive.

    As y stated, The EPOXY is sufficient adhesive, PERIOD. Whatever you used under the tiles ONLY keeps them in place until the epoxy sets. Those giving us thumbs down either don't know what epoxy is, or don't like FACTS.

    Epoxy is the best. Though Gravity does a good job too.

    You need a grab adhesive. Non solvent ones are cleaner to use and clean up. The epoxy resin seems a bit over the top. Floor tiles will be durable if grouted properly.
