Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #10: Fiberglassing the Hull

05-28-2015 12:30 PM by DustyMark | 4 comments »

Overview Fiberglassing the hull involves prep work, fitting the fiberglass cloth, applying several coats of epoxy, and sanding. Prep Work Whatever condition the hull is when you fiberglass it, is the condition it will stay, since you don’t want to sand through the fiberglass. All the corners of the boat must be rounded to a minimum of 1/4” radius because fiberglass won’t lay well across a corner that it is tighter. Outside corners can be routered or filed. Inside...

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #1: Building the Lower Frame

05-11-2015 07:00 PM by DustyMark | 6 comments »

The Requirement I moved back to MN in June 2014, after nearly 30 years away, and my brother quickly introduced me to duck hunting. We’re not on any of the major flyways here, so we need to put everything in our favor possible. We read about the advantages of layout boats in providing maximum concealment from wary ducks and talked about it in the duck blind all last season. Our hunting party consists of my brother, my nephew, and me and we decided to build three one-man layout boat...

Nakashima Inspired Coffee Table #2: Epoxy Fill and Cleanup

08-17-2012 07:31 PM by PittsburghTim | 0 comments »

After cleaning the bark, the next task at hand was to fill the large crack in the top and the slab for the legs with epoxy, I used blue masking tape to cover the openings on the underside and the sides of both pices of walnut and placed them both over plastic/paper drop cloths from the depot. Their cheap and protect my benches and floor. I used System 3 mirror coat two-part epoxy, mixed according to the instructions using some cheap plastic mixing cups from an autobody supply house. I p...

DN Ice Boat #1: Not really the beginning....

10-10-2008 08:42 AM by Heyz | 0 comments »

First of all, thanks to Trifern and Max for beating me to posting anything. They’ve given me welcome comments before I could do anything! Been reading this site daily for a couple of months now inspiring myself to build again…. So I’ll start with a work in progress. A couple of friends and myself decided to build our own DN ice boats sometime last year. I’ve already got one that I purchased a couple of years ago, but that’s only have the fun! So we got toge...

"Through Lay" #4: Epoxy Experiment

02-17-2012 01:48 AM by SisQMark | 13 comments »

Hello again, As I mentioned in my last post, when I got the next coat of epoxy put on I would post it, so here it is. This will be short, I promise. This side was still missing the glitter from when I first poured the epoxy because it sank to the bottom. So, I let it dry and applied another coat of epoxy mixed with glitter so it would match. Tomorrow I will coat this whole side with epoxy to include the edges. It should give the glitter some depth and a nice flood coat will finish bringing ou...

"Through Lay" #1: My epoxy experiment

02-15-2012 08:27 PM by SisQMark | 7 comments »

Hello everyone. This is my very first attempt at a blog, ever. If you are reading this then something in the title has captured your interest. I am attempting an experiment with epoxy (EnviroTex) that I haven’t seen before so I guess you would say I’m the pioneer. The stuff I’m using is called EnviroTex lite pour on high gloss finish. It’s a two part mixture of epoxy resin & polyamine hardener (equal parts of both). If you have never tried this, this stuff is amazi...

"Through Lay" #5: My Epoxy Experiment

02-17-2012 10:07 PM by SisQMark | 6 comments »

Well guys, as promised, here is side 1 of the finished “Epoxy Experiment” project I’ve been working on. After fixing the antennas & some sanding, this is the finished first side of my project. I added some spots of green & blue glitter mixed with epoxy to give it a little extra color. Note: You have to keep a close eye on it at first after pouring the epoxy, it is on the runny side. Keep an eye out for drips & wipe them off the bottom, remember this is going to b...

"Through Lay" #2: Epoxy Experiment

02-15-2012 09:08 PM by SisQMark | 4 comments »

Hello to anyone that is actually following along. I now have the epoxy poured, added some red & white glitter with some little stars, hearts & flowers. I noticed that most of the items sank to the bottom, I’ll have to make up for this during the final coat. I covered the bottom with packing tape so it wouldn’t just run through. During the tape removal I noticed It is still rather sticky. So take note: more drying time for the bottom to dry. Top of project after the epox...

"Through Lay" #3: Epoxy Experiment

02-16-2012 09:17 PM by SisQMark | 4 comments »

This is a quick up date of my progress. I cut out the butterfly on my band saw, then hand sanded it to round out the edges to a 400 grit. Of course small things do break & this was no exception. The antennas of my butterfly broke, so I am in the process of fixing that. First I tried some tight bond2, it didn’t stay. Next & finally, CA glue with a mixture of blood wood dust. I’m letting it dry now, then a little more sanding & I’ll be ready for the next coat of ep...
