What are you sheeting foam wings with these days? Many questions.

I've been looking for sources of obeche and found that it is getting hard to obtain. I've seen that there are some commercial wings bagged with (if I recall correctly) black poplar.

What wood are you using to cover foam cores with?

Where do you get it?

I guess fiberglass is the way to go now. What is the allowance for the glass over the cores? I have my templates made up to be correct with 3/128" wood over the top. Is that about right for the fiberglass too?

Which glass bagging videos do you recommend.

I was able to get some obechi from Ed Whyte, have you looked there? It's
been at least a year, but he did carry some fairly recently....

Good luck,
