Hi Roy, few questions after reading the book:
1)The epoxy glue used, what is that? Is this two part epoxy glue, or epoxy resin like used on a foam board. Not sure which to use here.
2)Maintenance? If the coconut oil needs to be refreshed after ~2 sessions, how do you keep wax on the deck? Do you have to de-wax, then re-oil, or is there an easier way.
