Joining the planks
After a light sanding to remove any oxidization and dirt from the plywood, Maddie applies packing tape to the joints on the outside of the planks -- this will stop any excess epoxy from seeping through. After the tape is applied, the planks will be carefully flipped over and glassed and epoxied on the inside surface.

Note that plastic is covering the table at all the joint locations to stop anything from sticking to the table should any epoxy get through.
