For those who have used flexible plywood before (this was my first time – it was a mixed success!), what glue did you use? There were too many plys (Four 1/8” thick flexply and one veneer) to use titebond – not near enough open time.
I used epoxy – West System (until I ran out!) which is very fluid and seemed to soak right into the plywood, so I had to switch to System Three (which I had never used before) which was like rubber cement – thick and sticky.
The resulting piece will be fine, I think, since it will not be load-bearing and will be reinforced. However, when I sawed about an inch off the bottom to clean up the base, I was easily able to break apart the plys on the offcuts.
Any advice? Thanks!
