A Potential Dirt Corner Is Filled

The gaps between the stringers in the stem area
are hardly accessible an therefore potential dirt corners.
I flooded the whole area with epoxy. 

WARNING to copyists! 
The task has to be carried out very carefull due to the heat producing curing of epoxy. I did it in several steps with just small portions epoxy and a slow hardener. 

To fill the stem-knee I first glued a small dam.

In the last step, I filled the corner with waste wood pieces and epoxy.
