Two maintenance coats … finished!
Day 1: 5 hours times 2 people, blue taping, sanding, wiping down, washing down…
Day 2: 2 1/2 hours, just me, tack cloth, varnish, clean up
Day 3: 2 hours for David, 3 hours for me … wet sanding with 400 grit sandpaper, rinsing, washing down, let dry, tack cloth, varnish … oh yes, extra half hour to strip blue tape at the end of the day.
Done by 11:45 AM
Started raining at 7 PM — 10 hours earlier than forecast. The varnish should be dry enough, we’ll see tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed!
Total Maintenance Project: 18 hours between the two of us, plus a new brush, 1 1/2 rolls of blue tape, a quart of Flagship Varnish, a couple splashes of Interlux 333 brushing thinner, several sheets of 400 grit sandpaper and a half tin of turpentine….
Time to celebrate! Cheers! Jan
