Default There's Something Rotten...

Finally getting around to finishing that item I mentioned earlier (Hijacks 'R Us)
Router Forums - View Single Post - Dust collection piping

Beltsanded the rest of the rail caps...100 grit belt...down to (mostly) bare wood. All the caps were stripped, cleaned up, and ready for finishing, in 45 min. About 25Lin.' top face only.
-applied 2 coats of liquid acrylic, consistency of milk. Bought two gallons back in 1998 and its still as good as the day I got it.
-filled a lot of very fine surface cracks with Epoxy autobody glazing.
-lightly sanded and cleaned ready for topcoating
-applied 2 coats of Sharkskin solid colour 'stain' over the acrylic.

Here's my thinking. ANY defect in the membrane allows moisture in. That's how the rot gets started; like a hothouse under the membrane. I'm tired of following the manufacturers' instructions. Frankly, they haven't got a clue about conditions in the Pacific N.West and their process is a recipe for rot.
The acrylic layer IS waterproof, and it does soak right into the wood fibres. I'm counting on it this time around, to prevent moisture penetration.

It's an experiment and hopefully this will be the answer to my bad experiences with horizontal exterior surfaces; the verticals...spindles and posts...have never been a problem as water doesn't just sit on them.


Note: the two shots of the Bosch belt sander, on it's back was to show how effective those crepe sanding-media cleaning blocks are!
If you don't have one, what are you waiting for?

Have you used the excel before and where did you get it?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Charles; the price sticker is still on it...and it has that date but everything else on the sticker is illegible. I have a feeling it was either from General Paint or Kerrisdale Lumber(?)...maybe.
Stick; great idea! Where were you when I was rebuilding the railing?

Did you notice the stair treads (horizontal surfaces)? D. Fir; I left them raw. I wash them down with bleach twice a year and that's pretty much it...they must be 12 yrs old now.

Charles; this sounds very similar:
Multi-Purpose Primer ? Liquid Rubber Online Store
...but currently available.

This might be worth trying as well. Maybe query the mfg,. for a start? I didn't see any mention of wood applications in their writeup.

you didn't ask...
easiest way to add that kant is to use an electric plane in place...
also when you add the Kant it makes the edge of the 6/4 - 5/4 and handrail code compliant..
adding a drip lip to the bottom rim is to your benefit too,,,

yes...
amazing how wood perseveres when water/dampness is allowed to drain/dry or it isn't in direct contact w/ CC...

Looks good Dan and I hope it works. I'd like to find something to paint a wooden table top
my wife bought for the back porch where rain is blown on. The top is just brought out for family
gatherings so the rest of the time there is no table to use. I haven't looked for a solution (material)
to use yet so your post has my interest.

Bryan; the one thing I have noticed, from sealing my S.in L's. back porch railing last summer, was that the acrylic held up to the weather very well...however the UV did take a lot of the colour out of the wood ie it 'greyed'.
In other words, it's not UV inhibited.
