How to glass

This picture is of a piece of construction plywood made into the top piece of the centerboard trunk that also is a support for the mast of a dinghy.
It is for my rainbow dinghy if you remember my prior post.

I have some fiberglass cloth and some epoxy so I figure I might as well cover it.
Covering a flat surface with cloth is easy enough.

This piece has so many corners and curves, any tips on how to cover it smoothly to cut down on the sanding.
