Painting the Ribs

Applying the clear coat before mounting the ribs...

4 coats of clear coat

I used the Interlux Schooner clear coat. It gives the white oak a golden and glossy finish.

A whole lot....

28 pieces need to be painted with 4 coats. Between coats they are also sanded with a 320 grit.

Hanging to dry

With a little wire the ribs are hanging to dry from the ceiling.
