I know this had been done to death, the whole white oak & epoxy thing. But I have a two questions.
1) Has anyone come across this
Apparently it's an epoxy specially forumlated for oak & teak. Being naturally cynical I'd love to hear of anyone's experiences rather than simply taking the producers word for it.
2) Being a beginner, I'm faced with
a) Use epoxy on white oak and it may fail. But I don't mind since I'll have bronze screws all over the place.Have I missed anything here ?
b) Use Resorcinol:
I'd better make my joints accurate, and I need to keep it warm (not going to happen out of doors in Ireland in winter, I can bring the individual frames indoors, but not the whole boat.)
c) Use Balcotan:
I still need to make the joints accurate, but I don't have to worry about the temperature.
I'm leaning towards Balcotan as it isn't 70F here in the day time never mind over night. Unless of course lots of you folk come back to me and say this new oak and teak epoxy is a gift from above and you all love it more than good red wine.
