RE: Trikan 2017
A bit more progress today. First 3 layers of colour finished on all sides.

Now for the daft bit - flatting it all down and making it matt again before the next 3 coats.

RE: Trikan 2017
After seeing this I'm considering spraying my black ash Trikan white. At the moment SWMBO won't let me have a centre at all, but a white one may, just, pass muster.

RE: Trikan 2017
Refinishing Black Ash is a major job due to the grain - it would take a significant amount of work to remove the grain.

Get a Festool random orbital sander like THIS. It’ll have no problem with taking the grain out, and with only a 2mm orbit, it can sand bare timber to a mirror finish. Use 120 grit to remove the grain, finish with 180 grit and it’ll be perfect for painting.

It don't mean a thing (If it ain't got that swing)

Leave that chap on one spot for a little too long and you'll end up turning it into a reflex speaker! Wink

Finished. Not perfect, but pretty happy with the results, for a first effort.
