I do 2-3 coats from a paint gun, very thin coats though. I also use release wax on the wood before the pva the wax helps fill pores and grooves.
Use thicked epoxy. Drill out 1/8” holes for the air to get out. Use a serrated squeegee to growl the putty on and wet out the core with resin. Just push down lightly and add light weight like pint cans or your tools.Chris I went 3/4” on the flange lip. I did smooth it out more since that video.
Yes I have smooth divinycell.
Do you recommend using thickened epoxy to glue down the core or just lay it wet on wet?
Look at the plans drawings and the drawings on the blog. You taper them and end them about 1/2” away from the edges. Lots of builders just but and fill with putty but that addas weight, cost and you don’t get the extra glass on the edges.@Chris Morejohn ok thanks
In your blog it looks like you laid core all the way to the lip and hatches. Is that correct?
That is really cool. I am looking forward to seeing how this comes together. Way over my head.
