Weaver's Delight Restoration - Varnishing and Painting
I also got another coat of the green paint on some of the cast iron pieces I showed in the previous post.
This is me, starting to attach the washed twill tape strips to one bar of the sectional warping beam with an electric staple gun.
There is a right and wrong direction to attach the tapes. Before I removed them from the bar, I made sure to mark which side of it the end of the tape needed to be. Otherwise, the straps won't wrap around the beam correctly, and the buckles on the end of the straps will hit the wood.
I will show the proper direction for the tapes in a future post, when I assemble the sectional beam.
Bed is calling!
