I need to counter sink a square hatch in a panel I'm building from 3/4 coosa core. Could of course do this various ways but if I had a 20x20, or even some 20 x 2 inch pieces, of 1/2 coosa it would be really easy to make a consistently flat square "sunk" section.

Will buy it off you, trade, whatever, pay to ship etc etc, just isn't worth buying a sheet for this little piece.

Thanks for looking!

Even small pieces would do it, going to be all glued together anyway and then laminated along w/ the larger panel. Really all that that I need to do is run them around the footprint of where the hatch bolts down since the inside gets cutout.

I just bought a 2'x4' piece of 3/8's thick coosa 2 weeks, they have a 20 foot red storage container full of coosa.

Ya they definitely carry lots of coosa, that's where all mine came from to begin with.

Funny, so when I checked before I used the catalog that showed up yesterday because their website was down again :) and it doesn't even list 3/8.

Edit: thought the shipping was going to be over the top because they advertise it is bulky, but upon putting it in the cart turns out is only $10, isn't outrageous.

If nobody has some scraps will probably just grab a 2X4 and make it easy.

If you built the panel from 3/4” and have some left rip it into 2” wide strips on a table saw and then set your fence to 1/2”, stand the 2 inch strips on edge and resaw them to 1/2”. If the tall blade seems sketchy just raise it half way and cut once then flip and cut again.

That's what I did, actually made 3 inchers, saw all the way up.

Worked ok, took a little sanding since the blade tends to flex and make a bit of an angle but worked, sanded flat after. A little working in with a DA and this will be perfect.

Also considered doing a solid glass patch but would have been more work.
