Talking More wood... SUCCESS!

I wanted to follow up with the bizzare Tide (detergent) and sealer treatment I am doing to our boat. Here are some results:

(sorry about the links... for some reason, I haven't seen now to do the IMG inline)

(This is mostly for you, Kai Nui. You said you were curious.)


Basically, I am ripping off Armani, who just got a new Mega Yacht commissioned with a similar interior.

I like it! Always wondered how to get that effect. I am still hooked on the deeeep clear varnish, but that loks like it would really lighten up an area. Might try it in my forward cabin (office).

boy - you don't lack energy. when you get done there, come up to buzzards bay for a few weeks.
please remember what i said about dust and open flame or sparks - thats a lot of dust.

And for your purpose, it just leaves the room "TIDE Fresh"
How are you applying the detergent? Wet or dry? I a guessing you are using it as a light abrasive to dull the surface.

Kai Nui: The degergent serves to dissapate the teak oil from the very surface of the wood - lightening it. I'm using liquid, so no abrasion here.

Cap lar: The dust you see is from one event - a vaccum explosion! I had a shop-vac lose its filter and blow dust everywhere. Other than that, it's a dustless operation - I only use the sander with the shop-vac attached, sucking in all dust.

Now I got it. Just had to whack me in the head a couple of times. Cool idea!

will you now seal the wood ? what product ? i talked with the head of the paint shop at my marina about your questions - it resulted in a 30 minute explanation of options. there are an amazing number of products that give different appearance to finish.
