Scupper 159


With the interior work and this phase of the project winding down, it was a good time to start work on the cabin table, which required refinishing.  The original table, which I removed early in the project, was heavily built of (I think) teak, and while it was in generally good condition, the finish wasn’t quite good enough to consider simply sanding and varnishing, with various nicks and scrapes that would have marred such an attempt.

To begin, I disassembled the table, removing the two drop leaves and their support systems, along with any hardware.  This left me with a series of manageable pieces.

I stripped the old varnish with a heat gun and scraper in the usual way and set the pieces aside for later sanding, cleanup, and eventual varnish.

Total time billed on this job today:   3.5 hours
