My excuse and I’m sticking to it at this time.
Today’s bits – not quite a match to the workings of 3 years ago .
Have run out of the linen-fold panels and have used same sized, flattened ones with a little anaglypta strip for its slightly raised striping. Also not got enough of top moulding so will mock in with some useful bits.
Was a right clutz staining the panelling for the new piece. Tried the water based new stain (which I don’t like) as supposed to be better for all of us and it just looked dead. Rubbed down and returned to the spirit-based stain. This took well but, unobserved by me, the back panelling has some very raised, larger grain and this swelled, distorting the whole thing. Left it alone for 36 hours and came back and started again with some sanding. No wonder the poor thing looks depressed 😦
