In the cabin, I masked over the new varnish on the trim and bulkheads in the passageway and forward cabins, preparing the area for primer and paint on the remaining surfaces. Afterwards, I applied a coat of primer to these areas.
I sanded the previous coat of satin varnish on the drawer fronts and doors down in the shop; the first coat of this finish hadn’t cured correctly, and had been oddly glossy. Working with well-stirred product this time–I figured the new can of varnish I’d started for the first coat must not have been stirred up, so the flattening agents had settled–I applied another coat of the rubbed-effect varnish, which I was happy to see cured to the proper level of soft sheen by the morning.
