    Interesting...but I trust the wood on my falco is doing a lot of work!

    I used a polyeurathane water soluble paint (Blue River) but still wanted the added wood protection that the thin layer of cloth provided.

    I think I wasn't very clear and didn't go far enough. AFAIK using very light glass isn't a problem, since you aren't expecting it to add strength and the wood will be well within it's limits whether or not the glass fractures or is even there. I suspect also that the problems arise when folks try to make up for bad structure with added fiberglass.

    The understatement of the decade!
