Interior hole plug

Ahead of epoxy coating the now-glassed interior, stitch holes had to be plugged. I mixed up a small batch of epoxy, and thickened it with wood flour to a peanut butter consistency. The instruction book calls for applying a small dot of epoxy to each stitch hole, using the plastic "piping bag" method. Instead, I opted for a medium size plastic syringe, of which I have collected several from fried turkey marinade containers. The loaded 30 mL syringe made a great dispenser, and I was able to quickly lay a tiny drop on each stitch hole. A quick swipe with a metal putty knife smoothed everything off, ready for the overall coat of epoxy to come. Total hours 47.75.
