5 construction tips that defeat the drips
Make your own plywood
For fragile fretwork or parts, such as wheels, that must endure stress from multiple directions, you can fabricate your own marine-grade plywood, as shown. Resaw and plane an odd number of thin pieces of your project stock (the more the better). Then laminate them back together using polyurethane, epoxy, or resorcinol adhesive, and rotating the grain 90° each layer. The parts will be stronger and more stable than solid stock, and will match the wood in your project.
