Varnish Prep--Day 20...!
So, for the last month, I've been stripping and sanding teak that was painted white. (these parts, I removed from the boat)
Q: I've got the wood looking pretty nice, slight peach hue. Should I 1) wash it, dry it, maybe wipe with acetone and then start varnishing...
to get the optimal shade,
use 50 / 50 bleach / water, let it stand for ____ hours, then rinse and varnish?
I've done a helluva lot of prep, and would like to get best results.
Also, dumb question, but when you guys are varnishing at home...how does one do the entire unit? (like hatch boards?) Do you make a stand to lean them against....or hang them on a string?
