 About the project

With the final coat of epoxy applied we can take stock of how much epoxy we’ve used so far: 9 gallons of coating, 2 ¼ gallons of filleting compound (there’s over 400’ of fillets), 1 ½ gallons of glue and 3 quarts of fairing compound. I should admit, though, that I’ve used the coating on 7 doors in the house also – they are the prettiest doors we’ve ever had. Lots of grain, tough and very shiny. Oh! Let’s not forget the 1 ¼ gallons of polyurethane glue also.
