Mixing epoxy resin

Today we had a go at the beginning of the skateboard making process. We started by cutting out four 350mm by 1200mm on the bandsaw. We used Fijian Kauri, which is not a very sustainable wood (see research). We then mixed some Epoxy resin (5 parts resin and 1 part hardener), in the pictures above. We wore latex gloves and surgical masks to protect our skin and lungs from the toxic resin.
