Hot Tubbing with SilverTip Epoxy 0
This is the Super "R" hot tub from Maine Cedar Hot Tubs, Inc. The outer shell of these tubs is constructed from an oil finished Western Red Cedar and accented with brushed stainless steel bands to mirror the appearance of the traditional cedar or redwood tub. Maine Cedar Hot Tubs, Inc. use System Three Silvertip Epoxy to cold-mould and overlay the cap rail, base rail, and inner shell of the tub.
Samantha Malay Uses MirrorCoat for Metal Tiles 0
I like to make durable surfaces using resin and small pieces of salvaged metal. I learned about MirrorCoat(tm) from Darin Montgomery, furniture designer-builder and owner of Urbancase. Nick Gucker at System Three Resins was very helpful, by phone and email, when I had technical questions about its use.

Custom 10' Skiff 1
latest project, a ten-foot, flat bottom skiff. Designed and built by yours truly. The boat was built with 1/4" meranti plywood from Edensaw Woods, and of course, System Three general purpose resin and T-88, (purchased from Revchem in Tacoma).
This is actually my fourth boat in the past five years or so. A picture of my kayak is still on your web site. I have to confess, that I have tried a few other epoxies over the past years, and I keep coming back to System Three! To me, the acid test for an epoxy is it's resistance to cratering when applied over a sanded, epoxy coating, compared to other brands, System Three does every time. I hope you continue selling the General Purpose resin, because I'm afraid to try any other resins! I want to include your new SilverTip stuff! I may have to break down and try some EZ-Fillet, and Gel-Magic on my next project, though.
Yours Truly, George Burns
Scribner's Skiff 0
I built a stitch and glue Montana Boatbuilders Skiff from a kit using Silvertip Epoxy with slow hardener. It was a great project and continues to be great fun.
