 About the project

The fiberglassing and epoxying are complete. The inside was, again, much harder than the outside because efforts to remove air bubbles and excess epoxy inevitably pulled the fiberglass away from the wood whereas on the outside those same efforts pressed the fiberglass against the wood. In addition, I mixed a batch of epoxy improperly because some of the epoxy didn’t cure. Removing the sticky gop before continuing was not the most fun job of the project. In any event, it’s done and we can start framing.
