  1. Hi Melissa, most resins have a hardener to resin ratio of 1:1, which means for 1 gallon of resin you need to add 1 gallon of hardener.

    So for your project, you would need at least 1 ½ gallon of each, 3 gallons in total. I would recommend getting a total of 4 gallons, just to be sure you have enough.

    Good luck on your project!

  2. Hi Francisca,

    Congratulations on finishing our picnic table project!
    I would advise to use exterior latex paint, such as the
    Rust-Oleum 1990730 Painter’s Touch Latex Paint in this article, for the bench, as well as the rest of the table.

    If it is only one color, you may simply repaint it whenever you need it.
    If you plan to paint flowers and other items, it is advisable to seal the painted surface with a clear varnish, just pick any from this article.
    It will have a translucent layer without yellowing and cling to the latex effectively (so as not to change the colors you have chosen). By doing this, you may avoid coloring the drawing and instead replace just the translucent cover as needed.
    Again, painting the outside is an excellent idea.

  3. Dear Ben,

    A UV-resistant like epoxy resin for wood, is what I would advise: Epoxy that is crystal clear, strong and impact-resistant, creates an excellent seal, and, most importantly, makes wood UV and waterproof.
    You may also apply exterior varnish topcoats for really tough situations as a long-term fix. Epoxy protects wood from moisture, preventing swelling and shrinkage. Because it no longer needs to expand and contract with the wood, external varnish has a longer lifespan. Varnish will also protect your epoxy from UV rays and extend its lifespan.

  4. Hi brand, sorry to hear about your boat 😢

    A fried of mine did this a few years ago. It was on an old barn, but his process should work with you as well.

    First you should make sure all termites are gone, I assume you already did that, then:

    Use the claw back of the hammer to remove all of the damaged and decaying wood.

    With a die grinder fitted with a core-box bit, sand down all wood that has been honeycombed and softened by rot.

    Use a meter to measure the wood’s moisture content. If the reading is larger than 18, repeat step 3 again.

    In the termite-damaged region, drill three holes that are equally spaced and half an inch deep.

    Utilizing the syringe, inject the wood preservative into the drilled holes.

    The epoxy primer should be applied with a 2-inch latex paintbrush. Utilize paper towels to wipe away any extra primer. Wait until the primer has dried for 15 minutes.

    On top of a plastic board, combine the catalyst and epoxy resin. Using a plastic putty knife, stir the two ingredients together.

    The epoxy filler can be molded into the termite damage. The epoxy should be shaped to fit the nearby wood.
