I took a moment to test-fit the new hatches I’d built for the trash receptacle and port aft bulkhead to ensure they worked as I’d hoped before continuing work on the new pieces.
In the cabin, I lightly sanded the first coat of varnish with 320 grit, then vacuumed, solvent-washed, and tacked off the wood to prepare for the second coat of varnish on all surfaces, which I did immediately.
Later, I tackled the pile of newly-stripped loose parts in the shop, sanding everything clean and smooth to prepare for varnish. Afterwards, I cleaned up the shop, but with dust in the air I decided to hold off on final cleaning and varnish sealer coat till next time.
