Worked on my skiff today, the first day in a few weeks. I faux painted the floor to look like a Mahogany and Holly deck of an old Chris Craft. I have a few areas to clean up & true up but all in all it came out well.
Thank you to everyone that commented, It took a few days to complete doing 3 or 4 rows a day so I had room to move around.
permitchaser - it should be no harder to clean than any other painted deck surface. It will get non skid and 3 coats of clear.
millerrep - Not really anything secret, some gel-stain over a peanut butter base. I took a picture of all the things I used , Ill post that picture below.
MSFLIES - Taught myself out of necessity, at 14 yrs old I loved old cars, I knew if I wanted a cool one id need to build it myself because I didn't have money to buy one, As I got older I wanted to do it not pay someone. As I've gotten much older Ive realized I'd rather F_ @# it up myself for free, than to pay someone to [email protected]# it up for me. I know there are many talented and trusted shops around but for me its something I really enjoy. As for the wood graining I started that a few years back when I was painting fishing rod blanks for a rod builder here in town, then on to some garnish moldings and dash board for an old Ford .
This is everything I used
Yesterday I added some faux plugs to cover my imaginary screws.
