I'd like to make some fenders for 20x2.0'' wheels. I have some oak veneer, a West epoxy slow-cure kit and a Wald fender as a mold. The plan is to laminate the veneer strips on the mold with the epoxy. Sounds simple but I'd like some advice before starting.
- How to prevent the work from bonding on the mold? Wrap an inner tube around it? Use resin only for the first coat?
- I'm not not sure how to clamp the strips on the mold, if needed;
- Not sure how thick the fender needs to be;
- Should I worry about mixing the grain direction
