Does anyone have any tips on ensuring that enough epoxy gets down to the wood when I try to wet out 2 layers of glass with no fill-coat? I will be using thin epoxy (Raka) -- am I worrying about nothing?
Apparenly George Roberts applies his epoxy directly to the wood, then rolls the cloth on, which has been rolled up on 2 pieces of PVC pipe like a Torah (scroll.) Unfortunately, I am a one-man operation. I did a dry-run of this method rolling from one end, but seemed to have a tendency to run off the side since I left only 2" of extra cloth on either side.
