So you have made the decision to build a boat; it does not really matter of what type, whether it is a kayak or a canoe or another type entirely. You just need to make sure it as light and as durable as you can build, whether it is from a kit, or you are building it from scratch. Making sure you adhere to one very important rule during the build process can make all the difference in the boat building process.
While it would be nice to find a little bit of this type of content provided in a unique, web-based environment, most of the really good information is still found in books. But more very good info is now making its way into the marketplace on DVD.
If teak furniture has turned gray it must be cleaned before applying any type of finish. If your teak furniture has turned gray it can be easy cleaned with a mixture of water and TSP (trisodium phosphate). Apply this mixture with a Scotchbrite pad or Synthetic Steel Wool (Never use real steel wool, because little pieces of steel will rust in the grain of the wood). Wet the teak and sprinkle on the mixture of TSP & water. Spread it evenly with a Scotchbrite or synthetic steel wool,give mixture a few minutes to work. While the wood is still wet, lightly scrub in the direction of the wood. Make sure to wet down surrounding areas before you start to protect area from cleaners. After scrubbing rinse wood completely and let dry.
Before applying the Epoxy for wood concrete floor coating a second stripper is applied to help remove contaminants and to give the concrete a sandpaper like texture. A rotary scrubber is used to help remove any mineral stains still on the cement. As in the previous step, the mixture is then vacuumed up completely, making sure that everything is removed the cracks of the floor.
Another reason this product is popular is that it is easy to clean if you do spill something onto it. There is a variety of colors available to use and regardless of the color; your flooring will look great for years.
Stitch and glue method involves gluing plywood panels together with the help of fiberglass and wood epoxy resin. Stitching helps to hold the panels in place, when the glue is applied and allowed to cure. There are numerous variations in stitch and glue boat building methods, but the basic remain the same.
Next, set the beam and cut it to the size you need. This will give you the rough sawn look. However, if you want a planned look, I will share another idea that has been shared with me: a planner head and motor can be mounted to the front of the sawmill head on a horizontal mill. The four post heads are strong enough to carry the planer head steadily. The planer head can be mounted on a pivot so that it can be lowered at will or locked up out of the way. After sawing the face on the beam, you lower the planer head to the surface of the beam and start the return of the saw head. This will produce a beam with a beautiful surface. Do this on all four sides and you have a top dollarbeam.
