My parents came out for a visit recently. I jumped at the chance of putting my Dad to work on the tsunamiball as well as playing a bit with steam bending a chair. He has been an inspiration to me, and being able to work on my project with my father is always a joy. Thanks Dad.

Quickly applying epoxy between each layer.
After the epoxy, everything gets clamped up in the porcupine and rests for a few days.
