Week 3 of Museum Doors

Dave Stern using dental tools
Ten coats of varnish is a lot to remove from the doors being prepared for the Cavendish Historical Society (CHS) Museum. It's now down to using dental tools to get at the last bits of varnish hiding away in the molding. "It needs to be as clean as possible for the primer and paint to stick," says Dave Stern, who is heading up this labor intensive effort.

Bruce McEnaney, Cavendish Asst. Town Manager and CHS board member, stopped by this week to discuss hinges and latches which will be historical accurate to the door and building.
Conferring with Bruce McEnaney about the latch.

One more day of touch ups will have the doors ready for Dave to modify. It won't be long before painters are needed for the next phase of the door renovation.
"Really, we're still not done?" wonders CHS volunteer
Kem Phillips.
