Spinning Plates Sausage Day
Today I am twirling around and trying to stay focused on tasks at hand. Zoom calls, People coming by the railway to help. And lots of Bruiser being busy. So today, some Sausage since the last thing you want to see is more of the ceiling update which is slowly being chipped away at. One tin snip cut at a time fitting in the last details. And yes, it will be sealed with some sort of sealer.
Great tip Andy C and John from VA. In fact JOHN from VA.. Since it was your idea.. You are now Director of Ceiling Sealing! That will teach you! HA. Enjoy the sausage.
Thats it for today, stay tuned for more Railway updates.
Always good to read WoodyBoater and get a good morning laugh. I almost spewed my coffee this morning. Lol! Have fun with the ceiling.
Tin Snips? I have reversed the blade on a circular saw and it cuts tin roofing “Like budder”.
I have been in a local restaurant where all of the ceiling fans run off the pole thingy belt.
Do not assign to me.
per my “assignment”: Sealing the ceiling…a sausage job.
Well, the givens:
Got to be a spray job…too much area and uneveness for roller.
That means got to cover/tarp everything and suit up like a deep sea diver.
Product to use? Something sparyable with a hand pump tank…thompsons water seal? Clear Epafanes? plain ole clearcoat ? being overhead work will be a real joy too. I find I have a airline credit from them ditiching my Dora flight last year and must use it before March 17th….so I will be away….
best of luck. John in Va.
I put two coats of clear polyurethane on a wood ceiling in our cottage years ago. Used a roller and got a good % of it on me. I don’t envy you that job. Too bad you didn’t coat it before you put it up. Good luck!
For the ceiling might I suggest “boiled linseed oil”. Not the fake hardware store kind but the real “Swedish” kind.
Free of harmful solvents and goes a very long way. Can be applied with a cloth or pad and dries hard to the touch with semi-gloss appearance. Can be applied over rust and prevents further rusting. Used in many machine shops as a rust preventative. and so pure you could drink it. Just a thought.
Great pics! You might try the Astaire technique for the ceiling:
Attach this to a Graco airless sprayer: https://www.ebay.com/itm/6-Airless-Paint-Spray-Gun-Extension-Spray-Pole-Fits-Graco-Titan-SprayTech/262647100737?hash=item3d26fcb541:g:SIoAAOSwYIxX68qm
Its a 6′ spray gun tip extension. Fits Graco, Titan, etc. alk about getting the shaft. I have the job from hell already (that’s what I get for being a subcontractor), so maybe if I survive this one in 3 weeks…
I would seal the ceiling in bacon grease. Then use belt driven ceiling fans to blow the lovely scent down to the seating area.
sounds like Matt is destined to flakes in his keyboard and flakes in his corn flakes….
Hoping for other hints and suggestions on sealing/sealant. Going to be lots of overspray if pressure/airless…less if just use a disposable tank sprayer and keep pumping. Have to cut the product too….???? CPES?

Hair spray. And just worry about the areas that matter, like over the desk.
Roll & tip with varnish! 6-8 coats. Be a true “Sons of Varnish”
i don’t see the need to seal it.
