I'd be curious to hear how the epoxy went after you sand it back. I've used it once and spent so much time sanding it that I dropped the idea after that. It's really a pain to work on. I'm afraid at the thickness it is it'll just stay on top of the wood and not absorb too much in it, you might end up with the same issue after you've sanded it back. Anyway let me know how it goes Thursday
Apart from that it looks like a million bucks, your designs are really nice.
Looking forward to catching up. I’ll bring it along.
The West System epoxy is reasonably low viscosity and the timber was really porous - I could actually see the liquid seep in so I’m somewhat confident it does some stabilising. It’s really meant more as filling actual holes, and of course there’s a secret ingredient in the mix .
Not looking forward to the sanding ... .
