"Wood"
« on: March 16, 2020, 12:16:07 PM »
  Started painting mahogany graining over the Formica bulkheads (see attached) The area shown is behind the mast. Looked into veneer but too time consuming for a look I can achieve better with paint.

  Mahogany looks a bit dark below so the other bulkheads will be in "teak" Picture attached of head door with teak base colour applied.  Next step will be adding the graining.  After the graining is done, surfaces will get 4 to 5 coats of semi-gloss Awlwood.

  Is it perfect?  No, but it adds warmth to the cabin spaces and is a low cost solution.  Lots of "how-to" instructional videos on YouTube.  Cheers!

   Starting on the fwd. cabin door.  Added molding to define door panels.  Molding will be "mahogany", the stiles & rails will be "teak" and the panels will be painted warm white.  This door has panel molding on both sides.  Head door will be paneled on the outside only... inside will have long mirror.

Step 2:  base colour.  Paint is latex exterior flat which accepts stain better than oil paint... has more "tooth" to it.

I dont mind the 'not so perfect' it if saves a bunch of time and money, and it certainly seems capable of that.
What Im not confident about is making the panel material all to be about the same tone or colour.
Especially given the aft facing section of the forward bulkhead and the lavatory compartment are white so it wouldn't have the dark formica as a base.
This is a key difference between my 365 and the lovely interior of Barber's 36' cutter 'Pandragon'

I guess if it doesn't work out all the other methods come into play, some are kind of horrific like vinyl wrap.
Wood replacement such as veneers or straight replacement at least allow oiled finish which is easy and somewhat consistent colour
and hold off the wood envy I get cruising the net in the present time rich environment.

Won't be all the same tone "wood".  Not to worry, will look much different when I'm done...trust me.  Cheers!

   Door top, middle & bottom rails done.  Colors are off a tad in the pictures because of the flash.  Next step is to mask the joint lines at the stiles and stain the stiles.  From there the door center panels are painted off-white.  When dry, we spray a coat of urethane varnish on for a first coat.  Reason for the spray is that brushed on varnish can smear the stain because of the solvent in the varnish.  When the spray coat is dry we start applying brush varnish over everything... 5-6 coats.  Varnish is semi-gloss.

 Still no access to the boat due to lock-down.
