The overlay itself is some sort of paper product which has been saturated with glue and is somewhat tougher than a wooden veneer. I think that if you are satisfied that epoxy and tape will stick to a layer of epoxy and tape (which is what the second layer of tape does on stitch and glue) you shouldn't worry about MDO.

I planed on it with hand and power planes and sandedit with everything from a side grinder to hand. Throughout, it stuck together and I found no flaws. My only knock on MDO is that 3/8's is the thinnest size available. Otherwise, I recommend it without reservation.

      > I apologize for this question, because I know it must have been asked before, but can epoxy/glass tape construction be used directly on MDO? Does the overlay have to be removed or roughed up before the epoxy/tape will adhere? If I glue dierectly to the overlay, how will the strength of that joint compare to one made to regular fir ply? Thanks
