Now that the paintwork in the passageway and forward cabin was complete, I unmasked the area and then reassembled the various doors, hinges, and trim to complete the work.
The owners requested a curtain to close off the saloon from the forward cabin, and this was underway at the canvas shop. To hang the curtain, I installed a simple curtain rod made from stainless steel rod with simple removable ends.
The door leading to the vee-berth had a second side that required the full varnish program (the head door had wood veneer on only one side, with Formica on the inside), so with the first side now complete and cured, I turned over the door to begin the work on the second side with a sealer coat of varnish. I also applied the first of a few coats to the little handles that came off the settee backrest cushions while these were being reupholstered.
