So, back to Boat projects! I pretty much finished all the teak sanding and sealing, and I am trying the same sealant on a few exterior pieces exposed to the sun. I don’t know what kind of mileage I’ll get out of this, but it can’t be much worse than the varnish, Cetol, and Polyurethane fails. There’s no gloss to it but the sealer celebrates the wood grain. Nobody’s going to go Wowie when they pass by the boat because of the marvelous finish on the woodwork, but my chalky paint job doesn’t disappoint!
Right now, I’m back to doing interior Teak, particularly the window frames in the pilot house. These are custom frames I had made to begin with, but when I reduce the size of the windows a couple years ago, I never got around to adding the teak wood on the frames to match the new windows. This isn’t as simple as I thought it would be. I knew matching the finish with new teak would be nearly impossible, but I figured I’d just celebrate the grain and color differences For a more contemporary look. It’s not looking that great.
