Thanks guys .the corners beat me up . It probably would have looked better to miter the corners but I couldn't figure it out . Still a long ways to go . Thanks for the motivation . Bow roller /windlass platform next . Working on wheel house doors now . The teak pile of lumber is getting smaller .

Second coat Epifanes thinned 25% .First coat was thinned 50 % . My wife is doing the varnish work . Weather conditions have been spotty to do varnish work . Today was good tomorrow won't be good .I think she has it figured out ,don't rush it and wait for good weather .I need to get her a real brush ,I think she's ready .Tried two more pics but they wouldn't go through .

At least your getting on with some beautiful finish work. So much of my own is filthy dirty, dusty, scrungy, fundamental stuff that I don't get to see something fine looking and polished forever. Anyway, great work. Winter is almost over, you know.

Keep up the awesome work and pictures! Looks awesome. I am psyched to see that cap rail varnished in place!

Now it's time to put the rail on for good ! RT You timed Carley Simon's "Anticipation "just right . We don't know what tomorrow might bring ! I had a little set back but I'll be slipping in to overdrive real soon .

Another section down on each side . Being that the rail is laminated teak strips I may need to park it in the sun a few days to get the different shades of teak to blend before varnishing . I want to try to avoid that butcher block look

Don't stress it mate. Colours look mint! Will look better when epoxied and clear coated.

Great work on both the cap rail and the other pieces, top quality wood working there!

Hope you have better luck than I did with those joints. Mine were cracked after painting....maybe within a month. I'm about to clean them out and try something else. Looks great!
