Fuse Sheet Plastic to Wood Answered

Not long ago, someone was lookin for solution to waterproofin wood box. Can't find it at the moment. Maybe someone else can find that thread.

My experiment:

Hot clothes iron                          [][][][][]
4 layers paper towel              ------------------
1 layer wax paper                    ____________
2 layers clear plastic tarp        ==============
Block of 2x4                             [[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[]

The layers of plastic fused pretty strongly together.  Bond to the wood was moderately weak.
This could be done with multiple layers, and only  the lowest layer stapled to wood. Thus achieving strong bond to wood, yet no leak at staples since only 1 layer is punctured.
