Step 1: Inspirations
Step 2: Fiberglass Chair Body
Apply clear packaging tape and mold release to the mold surface. Cut fiberglass fabrics and coremat ready before starting to mix epoxy resin. Here the layup is composed of 3 layers of fiberglass, 1 layer of coremat, and 3 layers of fiberglass. A layer of peel-ply is added on top to make the top surface smoother.
After cured pull off the fiberglass body off the mold. Sand the surface of the body smooth. Apply bondo if needed.
Step 3: Add Legs
After cured apply bondo and sand down the legs so that the surfaces are smooth and the feet are on the same level. Prime and paint the legs.
