I wasn’t sure if this was the correct forum, but here it goes.
I’ve got a bar style pool table without the coin mechanism. I’ve removed the old laminate and am planning on putting real veneer on it. When removing the old laminate, a good bit of the plywood came up with it.
I bought some Bondo from my local auto parts store and proceeded to give it a skim coat to even out the surface. The problem is, the Bondo isn’t getting hard enough to sand. It starts to wad up and gums the sandpaper. I’ve got my Bosch sander on low speed so that it doesn’t heat it up, but it makes no difference. Even when hand sanding, the same thing happens.
I’ve used Bondo plenty of times before and never had this problem. I’m using plenty of hardener and it’s 68 degrees in my basement.
Bad batch? I suppose it’s possible.
Does anyone know of a product that would better suit my intentions?
