Re: Strip: Gaps inside hull
In Response To: Strip: Gaps inside hull ()

Hi Aaron, I too am guilty of keeping the outside strips tight but my lack of experience in beveling shows lots of gaps on the inside, So I now have several choices, since they are inside fill with a filler, or when seeing Etiennes masterpieces prods me to do better. I use a board of the same color and saw the thinnest sliver I can get from the OUTSIDE of the board and cut slivers from this to glue in the gaps, They magically disappear. Good luck Nick R.
