Joel Simbrow: Hi Andy.....much thanks again for the lesson.
We're doing teak bar top and shelves in our bar.

Question: do you use 220 grit in between the Epoxy coats?
(also..any recommendation as to what grit to sand the wood to before first coat? We're using the same epoxy as you)

Don Voigt: Hi, great video on applying the West epoxy.  I'm installing a new cabin sole (old one became black due to water instrusion through the edges of the old floor).  So, I'm using the West Epoxy for the underside and edges of the new marine plywood and then will apply spar varnish to the top/exposed surface.  My question is - how would I prepare/rough the surface of the Epoxy before I apply the adhesive and set the new floor in place (I'm using Sikaflex 291 on the new marine plywood and will lay it down onto an existing subfloor in my boat).

Niall O'Bodicin: Hi Nick. Big fan.
I take it this epoxy method can only be used on flat wood?

 I am renovating the inside of a boat. The wood has been damaged with black mold on teak veneer. I have stripped it and used oxcalic acid to take out the mold spots. I would love to epoxy it, but i cannot remove the walls of the boat to lay it flat.

nick scott: whats the name of the epoxy used?

nigel robinson: Hi Andy. I just wanted to say how brilliant I think your videos are.!!!! Thanks very much.

East Teak Fine Hardwoods, Inc.: Great video!

Joseph .D Gunning: Very helpful, I am doing my first strip build Adirondack guide boat and about to do the first coat of varnish. I appreciate you sharing your experiences and look forward to seeing more from you.

vikingwhite: I picked up the West Marine system you're using to finish all the outside and inside trim on a small wooden weekender... the gentleman there said this was easier than varnishing and didn't mention need for it nor sell me any varnish. Will it turn horribly yellow if I don't do the varnish especially on the outside trim in the sun?

thomasuras: What do you think of the German product coelan ?

MyStuff: Hello, Trying this method on swim platform. First time using epoxy. Blew it first time;too cold, had to sand it off. Second attempt came out nice. Put two coats on bottom side. Problem with drips around edges when I flipped it, will have to sand them off. When I coat the top side can I tape the bottom edges to catch the drips?


Patrick van Wijland: Hiya Andy,

If I'll use this method will this also strenghten the wood.

Thanks and keep up the good work with your video's


BoatworksToday: Probably not a good idea. As the epoxy cures it 'gasses off' somewhat, if another wet coat of epoxy is applied before the first has started to tack up it will cause bubbles in the finish.. Been there and tried it :-) Not fun...

Guitarman3348: would you sugest multible coats at one time to speed things up or not and why?

kelly grogan: Great Job!! I will use this method on my boat. My question is the teak that is outside the boat is weathered and faded. Inside the cabin still has a nice deep color to it. I am striving to have it all match. Should I do a teak stain on the outside pieces prior to this process? There has been some teak "restorer" product applied inside, any special prep work other than a good 220 sanding?? Thanks again!

K Rayne: Have you tried this on Ipe?
