Scupper 115


I had to divide my time this week, with some unplanned personal obligations requiring my attention, but still very much wanted to keep the varnish work going, so I allotted at least enough time each day to continue the process.  After a morning away, I returned to the shop in the afternoon and, over the course of a few hours, lightly sanded all the ongoing brightwork, then cleaned up as usual and applied another coat of gloss base varnish to all areas, beginning with the ceilings.

Afterwards, I continued with the rest of the interior trim in place.

With five coats of gloss varnish on the small trim parts and locker door panels, this time I switched to the rubbed-effect satin varnish for what could be the final coat of finish.  When wet, as in the photo, it shows as glossy, but would dry to a delicate sheen.

Total time billed on this job today:  4 hours

0600 Weather observation:  32°, light rain and snow mix.   Forecast for the day:  Rain and snow, then all rain and showers, then ending and clearing after noon, high around 50°
