refinishing cabin sole w/2 part coating
I'm going to be refinishing a cabin sole with Awl Bright. I'm hoping 2 coats will be enough as there is all ready a lot of material on them ie: the grain is well filled. I think they have Awl Grip clear on them now. Will be applying by brush with a light scuff between coats. Questions are
1. should I wet sand between coats ? what grit?
2. doing this in a not so clean shop and am expecting some dust in the final coat and am looking for superior high gloss so thinking of buffing after final coat. what finishing material should I use and with what type of buffing pad. should I wet sand by hand before buffing? what grit ? I have a Hitachi 7" sander/polisher 1400-3400 RPM. Sanding will be with a Festool 6" RO.
3. a few dings here and there will fill w/ West 207-105 however some of the sides are almost bare and some sides are being cut back to bare for better fit, also, there are some new margin pieces being milled, 1" wide. thinking epoxy sealing all bare wood but West is so thick and removing amine blush is a hassle any other options? Mas Epoxy? not really looking to fill the grain on sides and edges, and they will get a Awl Bright coat for a final, but the tops of the new margin pieces will of course need to be well filled to match the boards. these are solid teak and holly floorboards from a Hinckley sailboat
