Composite construction offers the advantage of extremely smooth skins and the ability to easily form complex curved and streamlined structures. The skills needed to work with composites are not difficult and are easily learned

This video produced by Ron Alexander of Sport-Air Workshops and EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association demonstrates the various types of materials and techniques used in basic composite aircraft construction including:

laminating systems
types of foams
fiberglass and various other cloth types
simple lay-ups
joining molded parts
use of peel ply

A comparison of 3 available composite videos is:
Basic Composite Construction Techniques (this one)
Mostly a demonstration of the techniques to build a flat and an intersecting composite sandwich panel.

Fiberglass 101
Mostly a demonstration of the techniques to build and install non-structural shaped parts such as intersection fairings and wheel pants components.

Aircraft Composite Construction
Focus on the materials used in aircraft composite construction including foam, resin, cloth, fillers, etc.
