Hi Kim and Laszlo,
Kim, you've applied eight coats of epoxy and you still haven't filled the weave?
Let's see... Check out the CLC link below... Also be aware that if you keep building up layers of epoxy, at some point you're going to introduce cloudiness... I'd say follow the instructions in the link below, and if you really want to go overboard with the quality of the finish, hand sand (and/or wet sand) to the point where you're using emory cloth. Then rub on an ultra-thin coat of varnish by hand and wait. And wait. And wait. (Check out the Web for rubbing on varnish... Once you've tried it you'll never go back, though the process can take weeks.) Then repeat the process. You'll know when you're done when the depth and richness of the deck takes your breath away.
Best to all,
