That presents a problem with it collecting dirt...so maybe you could fill the strips in with an epoxy, something clear or colored? Could be a very cool look.

good luck, krista
kinda a neat idea, but sadly this must be kept as whole sheets to be strong i would guess, the honey comb is actually very bendable and has its strength from the full structure. i can see a counter made from it that could have a good clear t part resin to cap the exposed edges.... hmmm thoughts abound

Rivka; Let me know what happens when you accidentally drop a frying pan or cast iron pot or even a sharp knife that might land pointy end down on the floor. I'ld be interested to know. Nice to hear you have all the tools to do the job. Good Luck Tim

yes that is a thought, a pessimistic one , but a thought nun the less.

thankfully this is a trail and one i am working to keep light, so no cast iron for me thank you. and the knife thing?... i will assume that with the great Marnolium i am planning to put down , it would be this layer, that i would worry about. Same as everyone else in their trailers. and the frying pan, not that i cook much, but when i do i'll make sure to have a good grip and keep the butter off my hands!

seeing as you're going down this avenue, I wouls recommend the West Systems book they offer on epoxy use.also you might want to look at Advanced Composite Techniques/ Smith. For structural bonding Hysol works extremely well. Sorry about the pessimistic view but the stuff I build fly's, gotta look at all the goods and bads. Truly tho I wish you the best. Wanna Sell a half sheet and send it to me?? You are quite ambitious for a 74 yr. old!!! Tim

Careful 'Gunner, I think that was a Date of Birth of '74, not 74 years old!! But then maybe you knew that and was just messin' with 'er.

Tim, relax, i was just poking at you. and no worries about the age thing or anything else, I'm a girl with a think skin and a twisted sense of humor at times.

as for reselling some, since this is the only sheets of this i ever expect to get my hands on, i am going to wait till my project is done before selling the extra. Wish i could have bought 3 times as much and passed the chance onto others. i will keep checking in on boeing surplus like i always do and if it ever comes in again i will buy it right away and offer it at cost to the forums.

Somehow i think i know the answer to your question. This thread, if you check the dates, lasted all of 3 days and dried up.
