Creative Clamping- wooden boat transom veneer

Julien removed a quarter inch of old mahogany and replaced it with a new 1/4 inch piece. First he sealed the new piece of wood with a thinned down west system sealer. While it was still tacky he applied West System mixed with cotton fiber- as an adhesive. For creative clamping , Julien used a stiff board that barely takes the bend, some carpet backer with plastic to keep it from sticking. West system ooz. Then he pulled the backer board tight with lines to the winch.
