Sanding

The biggest part of the building project, in terms of effort and time, is "finishing". Sanding, painting, and varnishing will be the most tedious part of the job, and it began today. With the first side of the epoxied strakes sufficiently cured, I started sanding them in preparation for a second coat. However, I was only about 45 minutes into the job when my bargain-basement sander quit working. Whether it is gone for good, or just overheated remains to be seen. But it's my own fault, I suppose, in trying to get by with cheap tools. I just thought that even the cheap ones would last longer than 45 minutes. Total hours 6.75.
