Wooden dinghy boat building tips in Fix It Anarchy Posted November 17, 2021 Build a wood box big enough to store epoxy and put a light globe of at least 25w. That will keep the epoxy at a workable temp. I have used fan heaters and plastic sheeting to warm jobs before . You can adjust temp with venting to give a constant temp. I always monitor temp with a thermometer . Pretty easy and straight forward once set up . Try to bring up to temp before applying epoxy if possible. If temp goes up after application it can expand air inside the wood and blow bubbles in the epoxy. BTW- I built my first boat in the living room. I had just started renovating it. Halted the renovations, built the boat and then finished off the room.
