Fiberglass delaminate

Recommended Posts

Some of the glass has  delaminated   off  my main tabernacle.  I suspect the screw holes and end grain not being glassed may be the culprit.  The wood surface still seems to have a little bit of epoxy coating it.  My plane is to sand and reapply glass.  Should the edges be grounded more so I can glass the end grain?

What ever you decide to do, you must remove everything that is compromised in the slightest.  I would just do that first, then ponder my problem.

The builder used epoxy. Maybe the lamination was to dry. And not glassing the end grain allowed the wood to swell.
