Nicely done! I have once built a small boat out of plywood and glass, and it successfully kept water out.... so I can probably build something similar to keep water in.

Great idea! Thanks! (this'll also help me get more confident with glass work)

There isn't much to working with epoxy. The metering pumps and West Marine make is idiot proof. Five pumps of resin needs five pumps of hardener. If you can count, you can epoxy!
