I'm okay with decent quality luan underlay/door skin.
The key word in the above sentence is quality. It is out there, but you do have to look for it. If you're going to seal it with epoxy anyway, then waterproof glue isn't a deal breaker to me, and i like knowing I can go pick up more from the local lumberyard less than 5 minutes away.

Thanks for the info - I've never heard of that happening. The only problem I have ever encountered painting over epoxy is failing to completely remove the amine blush - that acted like silicone, leaving patches of fisheyes.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Barquito is on a distinguished road
I think some run a hair dryer over the wet epoxy to get it to smooth some. O/W, unless you don't care about weight, should only be a few layers. Wet-out raw wood, glass, then maybe one more layer. If there are any imperfections fair those spots with thickened epoxy b/f painting. I'm going to be driving a couple hundred miles next weekend to get some marine ply to start my project.
