Those do look good. How much epoxy did it take?

Well, that was a pain. I epoxied one full face, all the edges, and a strip 2-4" in from the edges (on the upside) of all sheets of ply.

I used WestSystem epoxy; a quart of resin was enough, but my hardener ran out about three pumps short of finishing; so I was able to get away with one quart of resin and two cans of hardener. ('course, now I have an almost-full can of hardener, and I'm out of resin).

OK, don't mind me ...

... except I'm confused ... it looks as if the insulation (what is it, anyway) is wrapped around the edges that need to butt up against each other, which would cause a soft gap. What am I missing? Do I need to go back & re-read the whole thread?

Nah, the insulation is cut square off, even with the sides.


Even if it were to stick out (the fluff, that is) by an inch or so, when the sheets are butted up against each other, the 'glass will just compress a bit. Makes for a more-airtight gap.
