I have a project, which is using laminated bubinga.
I like the epoxy idea because of the wood and because of the long open time.
However I have heard that epoxy “Likes” a fatter glue line and it is easy to get into problems with delamination because of overclamping and glue starvation. Wheras with PVA glue it really is nearly impossible to overclamp, that before you would get starvation, you are physically crushing the wood fibers.
I’m trying to sort out the “Real” from the “My friends, cousins neighbors grandpa said…..”
Is Epoxy a bad choice for laminating 1/8-3/16 strips to make a rocker? Or is there something better. I also want little to no springback.
