No, don't put the mahogany over the glass. Epoxy the mahogany to the plywood than glass over the mahogany. Skip

Sscobra is correct
If the sides are to be bright I would use 4oz deck cloth on them and the 6 oz on the bottom

G/Day well second skin going down using Bote-Cote thick epoxy works well and using staples, i dont know if you can get different gauge staples but standard leave to big a hole especially for the top Mahogany timber any suggestions ....John

I used 18 gauge staples for the mahogany layer
I stapled thru a thin sacrificial piece of wood so I wouldn't damage the mahogany when I pulled them out. I pulled the staples about 8 to 10 hours later. If I waited longer they were much harder to pull. After a rough sanding I wet the wood with warm water several times. The holes vanished. I didn't use a long board for the sanding. I bought a Hutchins straight line sander. Don't buy the cheap imitations as they don't work. You will need lots of air to run the Hutchins sander if you go that route.

I got my mahogany veneer 4mm x 350mm for my king planks from Monaro timber Canberra

They also sell other timbers and have large sizes and good milling facillities

Bags of sand probably cost less than a box of staples!

Nice work!

I like the tubs of water. Can be used for storage between boat projects!
Happy Boating,
