Started on the passenger doors had to dump 2 as the frame rails were held to tight and the rails ended up slanted inwards.



The 1.5mm brass rod will become door handles.

Finished the narrower doors this morning and applied a coat of dope to seal the grain left it several hours and applied a coat of satin clear this is the result.



Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed  The clear didn't like the dope obviously by the cloudiness.

Another lesson learned as air in shed turned rainbow colours into the bin they went.

Start again tomorrow using 5mm x 3mm planks used on bow & stern decks.

The timber is actually 4.1mm x 2.2mm brown and white 5.26mm x 2.2mm



For the narrower door the white rails are edge on leaving considerable sanding to do.

Trimmed and sanded smooth not an easy task pushing 2mm wood back & forth on 280 grit sand paper nails on 3 fingers are rather strangely manicured lol, rails for sliding cargo doors fitted not final sanded yet.
