The Dust Mask.
[Photo: Clamps came off and the edging stayed in place. Gorilla Glue!]
Yesterday's big job, after removing three clamps from the cedar mantelpiece, was mixing a bit of wood filler that would closely match the lumber I used for the project. With the three colours of filler I keep on hand, I think I got pretty close.
One can see just a bit of filler, but after today's sanding, likely not.
Today I don my ancient dust mask (I will look like a creature from The Fly) and do some sanding. Hopefully there will a light breeze heading toward Wortley Village. [ It pays to advertise : ) ]
After sanding I will apply various finishes to a sample board.
What finish will win the day?
We'll find out after the dust flies.
