Re: Picts added
- View SourceKurt,
I clean up hardened epoxy with judicious use of a heat gun. It turns runs and dribbles quite rubbery, and easy to scrape off. Don't hold it on a joint too long, as it may come apart. When it cools again it is back to original strength.
Hope this helps.

Consulting with my middle daughter, we decided a thin mahoghony wedge between the inwale and outwale tapered up to the stem would look nice, with the initiating line projected across from the edge of the breasthook. Not super visible in the picture that I posted, but I like how it came out.
