Are you recommending that I coat the wood with epoxy and cure it first and then apply the cloth and a second coat of epoxy, or are you saying to apply epoxy to the wood and put the cloth down quickly before it is cured and wet the cloth with epoxy from the top side?sq225917 wrote:make sure you give the deck a thin coat of just resin first. cos if you just glass straight onto it, its going to peel off real quick, as there is such a difference betwen the flex characteristics of the two materials. the glass will just buckle on the top side of the board as its not able to deal with the compression stress. unless you put a shit load on that it.
more than 3 layers being a shitload....
On my plywood boards I put 6oz/yd glass on top and bottom. I use 3 layers 3mm birch plywood for the core. It is still pretty flexible like this and it is possible to break them, though not very easy.Anonymous wrote:

It seems to me that foam and cloth also have entirely different characteristics.
