A History of Epoxy Projects

Older WEST SYSTEM Epoxy users might remember a feature of Epoxyworks Magazine called the Project Directory. Back in the dark days, before the Internet, we offered a free service that connected epoxy users who were working on similar projects. A customer would submit their contact information and type epoxy project to us, which we’d store in a card file organized by project type. For example Multihull Construction, or Dinghies/Prams/Skiffs/Dories. These epoxy projects were divided into numbered sub categories like 2-22 Tiki Catamarans – Wharram design. This way, someone building a Tiki catamaran, for example, could get the contact information of someone who’d successfully completed a Tiki catamaran, then send them snail mail to hit them up for tips and advice.

Then along came the Internet with handy things like email listservs, boards with forums, and blogs. Suddenly, finding someone who’d completed an epoxy project like the one you were considering was as easy as typing a few key words into a search engine. Convenience and speed ruled the day, making the good old Project Directory obsolete. We discontinued the quaint snail mail service in 1999.

We still publish Epoxyworks Magazine twice each year, both online and in traditional print. We’ve organized the epoxy projects featured in the magazine on our Epoxyworks blog to make it easy for epoxy users to find projects similar to the ones they’re most interest in.
