Ensign #1212 | Wednesday, June 4, 2014

I continued working my way through the large collection of mahogany bench and trim pieces from the cockpit.  With the cockpit seat slats taken care of for now, I focused on the various small trim bits and seat supports. 

I stripped remaining finish with a heat gun and scraper, then sanded the pieces thoroughly with 80 grit paper to even out the surface and coloration between the areas that had been bare and those that had still had finish.


The main bulkhead doorway trim and seat supports were next on my list.  These pieces each had multiple surfaces to strip and sand, requiring more time than one would imagine at first glace.  The process was not particularly visually stimulating (nor in any other way), but the wood cleaned up well and it was nice to be on the way towards new finish.  I sanded the cleats that would hold the seat slats together from beneath, though there was no need to bring these to the same level of finish as the exposed pieces.



After stripping only one of the L-shaped seat supports, work came to a premature end when the power went out.  I had planned to finish the remaining three supports, but it was not to be.
