Finally got back on TIH after 10 days away.
I had contracted out some woodwork and varnish work because;
a. I have no time.
b. I am c$ap at woodwork and varnish work.
The results look good (photos are from my phone - will replace with better ones later).
The lockers above the woodwork were painted with Interlux Bilgekote, which I am beginning to really like.
