|First up, fill the hole from last week where the rot was with builder's bog|
|The bog sets quickly allowing sanding off|
|A new section of 9mm quad is added, held in place by acrylic sealant|
|Then a good coat of 3-in-1 and the whole area is as good as new!|
|Some time spent with an old chisel and sander cleaned up the area surrounding both toplights before the whole lot was sealed with 3-in-1.|
My home work was taking the dining table out and doing some remedial work on it. I build this table several years ago from a solid slab of silky oak that a mate gave me. Despite some elaborate devices on the underside, it has warped since I installed it. So, as part of the renovations of the dining area, I'm trying to straighten the warp and generally refurbish the piece.
|Dewarping by strapping the table top to my trailer with chocks underneath running against the warp.|
|The warping has cause the edge pieces to come out of shape and open up so I recut the corners and have the errant pieces strapped back into place.|
This is just the start of the table refurbishment. After she has been strapped down for a while, I'll screw in the edges to tighten it all up then strip the upper surfaces, refill joints and cracks and revarnish the whole lot.
