It's not my board but the PU you are inserting can also be poured, polyurethane is available in a bigger range than epoxy is. Anyway, I've used kwila wood for rails on my last one!downunder wrote: ↑Tue Mar 27, 2018 2:42 amGood stuff man!
So, what are the benefits of pouring it in the wood channels? Probably bonding. But than, I've never had one single board delininated on rails which were not poured, and not talking about a few boards either:)
Here, it's that simple and more important - clean with nothing to go wrong like spilling the resin everywhere (done that
Is the surface shaped yet?

How many bubbles you've got in the rails? That's probably more near wood line simply because this is where air is trapped and degassing (epoxy produces heat, heat will expand air bubbles). There is no way to control this. The air void can be trapped inside no matter what.
The premade PU rails eliminate this, as you see, it's very tight channel. For sure I'm using similar for inserts and fins.
And, it is highly repeatable, which diy pouring is simply not. Forget about the abs, it's too expensive and too much work.
