Quick process check on the puzzle joints:
1. straight epoxy on the mating surfaces
2. "peanut butter" glue on the mating surfaces
3. assemble
4. thin coat peanut butter over mated joint, both sides
5. even pressure over full joint
6. let set overnight

I left off all the plastic stuff. just wanting to verify that I have the epoxy/glue application set up properly in my brain.

Thanks.

That sounds pretty good, but you may not be able to flip the two assembled panels for that #4 "thin coat peanut butter over mated joint, both sides", you may have to wait until it is set for that one.

That was my thought. I'm thinking that I'll make that the "outside". then it will get covered with 12oz glass to compensate for any issues with mechanical over chemical bond in the adhesive.

Well... I'll not be inviting CL over to inspect tonight's handiwork.

Pretty sure I make my glue too thin. My mixing bowls are too small and I don't think I added enough wood flour. By the time I put the top plastic on the joints looked "drained" of glue. I suspect when I pick up the boards tomorrow I will have puddles of glue.

I have pics uploaded but won't get to add them to the thread until tomorrow.

And bigger bowls. Should be able to get it right tomorrow. I figure I can use it like a putty to fill gaps if I need too.

Well... it's what I expected.

Looks like a bit too much epoxy AND did not smooth the plastic well
Image

Not real easy to see here, but not all the joints are "flat" on this side"
Image

There are voids on the time from the too thin glue running through
Image

And the bottom has puddles.
Image

Looks like plenty of sanding in my future.

Not sure on the "best next step". I don't think I should try to disassemble the joint. Fill the voids then sand? Sand then fill? Open to suggestions.
