There is a lot of info in this forum. Do a search, perhaps using Google. Read for a while, then come back with questions.

Absolutely!
In fact, I would say read lots and keep reading. Meanwhile, ask questions as they come up as Gerald says.

Jason,

There are some good tutorials here:

http://www.cstsales.com/tutorials.html

And the West Systems products are easy to use, readily available and forgiving for a first-timer.

The only thing I would change is using Frekote mold release instead of what they recommend.

Keep reading and asking and best of luck,

Mike

More than one correct way.


Jason,

One important point about composites: You will find that there is more than one way to perform a particular task, often many ways. Some of course are inefficient or plain wrong! However, the job can be done well several ways in many cases.
I would advise to avoid taking short cuts with inferior products like resin and wax etc. Many of us learned this the hard way and what turns out to be the expensive way. Good resin costs, but is cheap in the long run and a dream to use. Beginners (and experienced) need no unecessary handicaps like trying to wet out cloth with high viscosity/short pot life inferior resin. (This is just one example).

Jim.
