Another Beautiful Ceiling

Another ceiling that I just finished up this morning,On this particular ceiling the owners just wanted not really a stain finish but just a slight amber/ natural finish..Furst step for this job was to apply a sanding sealer ..This step is one of the most important that most people forget about.The reason for this step especially in stained wood is to seal the stain for sanding purposes(to sand wood without removing any stain ) and to help make your varnish lay down mush smoother.Fot the finish coat we used a sikkens outside varnish,,This type of product is excellent for outside use because of its high uv protection,,To get a slight amber look we used an amber varnish.Two coats of the varnish was applied ,,.So this just quick recap and thank as always for looking..

Waterproofing is the process that protects the boot’s outsole from the water damage that would result from the skate making contact with the ice. If you have a skate with a PVC bottom (the plastic based outsole) then you do not need to waterproof your boot. 218 more words
