Re: Resealing veneer seam?

At a certain point it is tempting to say "strip it, sand it, paint it" and be done with it.

Repairing the veneer, cutting out all the bad stuff, inlaying new, matching...a lot of work that still may never look right, depending on practice and your skills. I think it would be easier to strip & fill, then apply a totally NEW layer of veneer (wide veneer strips) over the whole thing, so there's less piecework to do. Not as cheap, but way faster and cleaner.

You're right though on coats, 8 minimum. I'm now 12 years(egads, I'm wearing a watch!), on this cabin back varnish with a single coat each spring.

It looks like it will be several years before I have to do it all again.

That is,...if I can wait that long.


see I like doing it too...on my old h28...took a lot of pride doing it...loved it!

"want" depends on the user! jajjaja
