OK, so drying epoxy might not be beautiful in a classical sense, but… where the epoxy hits the dry plywood it acts almost like a stain, bringing out so much color and grain. Then it sits in open grooves and puddles around the indentations around the staples. It’s nice. I also like the Frankenstein affect of the staples and the epoxy+filler goo-ing up around the old drywall screw holes. Extra nice, right?
