              Loctite PL Fail... PLEASE no more discussion of PL in this thread, go here for the discussion

              Time to try West System. So far I'm madly in love with this stuff. I'd better be, because I just took it out to a very nice dinner... and it better cuddle with me later... this stuff cost me right around $100 :eek:

              The filler material is (say with RI accent) AWESOME, you just add as much as you want until it's the consistency you want. PERFECT for gap filling.




              I ended up adding a nicer bead to the joints after this pic was taken.

                  Thanks...

                  If I'm honest, this has been a bit frustrating at times...

                  I've had a few "Wait... Why am I doing this again?" moments, when it wasn't feeling like fun anymore...

                  Deep breaths, carry on.

                      Have not been too active recently.....sometimes life gets in the way you know. I have been trying to follow this thread religiously tho becoz Lunch calls it as it is...and I appreciate that. There's a lot to be learned and experienced through his projects. Keep up the good work, Lunch!!

                        This is why they call any good hobby a labor of love. The frustrations, the learning, and the emotional journey to create is (for me anyway) most of the fun. It is why I believe are never satisfied with just one good build.

                        Keep it up brother.

                          So I decided to try a new trick to clamp up the next corner-wrap pieces... using double-stick tape I stuck two aluminum angle irons to the wacky wood...




                          Here's the West System epoxy ready to go in the dado cuts...



                          Then I only needed 4 clamps because of the angle irons... piece of cake...

                              oh, I already know the west systems will hold... the one I clamped up a few days ago held beautifully (forgot to take pictures of it)

                                I'm glad, but not surprised. They use the stuff to build airplanes.
