Thinning Epoxy

In a post to Yahoo Star 45 Groups Terry Forbes reveals his method for thinning epoxy so that it soaks, as a first coat, thoroughly into basswood planked decks he builds.
He adds 90% isopropyl alcohol ('rubbing" alcohol) to mixed epoxy, using an eyedropper, until the viscosity is what he wants.
Apparently, this does not adversely affect curing.
I find this fascinating and useful info.
