Now it is time to piece the ends. I made a pattern from a piece of brown wrapping paper being sure to allow for about 2 inches of overlap. I then found four scraps of sufficient size and carefully cut them using the pattern as a guide. Just to be sure, I draped each one in place to be sure it would fit just right.I covered a section of the table with plastic trash bag plastic and wetted out the glass there. I then peeled the wet glass off of the plastic and positioned the wet glass. It was then easy to smooth it with my gloved hands and the squeegee.
After the end pieces cured I carefully scraped and feathered the overlapped areas in preparation for the fill coat. Then a heavy fillet of thickened epoxy is applied to the bow and stern and finally the entire inside is painted with a coat of epoxy to fill the weave and cover the overlaps of glass. The fill coat is followed by a second fill coat which now looks nice and smooth. Then I mixed some thicken epoxy and applied it to the inside stem where the breast plate will be inserted. Wet the mating surface of the breast plate with epoxy and then press it into place.
