Sealed on bottom and all edges (one section under table not shown in photo). Monday Ladder refit, then working installation forward. Cost of material alone $900. Final finish high gloss varnish (varnish mfg. decision next week (or a gym type finish) after much research). I am having a life-long woodworker friend do the work with my non-professional assistance. Estimating final cost $2000-$2500. There is a tremendous amount of intricate work and no cost cutting measures whatsoever! Removed and refinished the moulding strip. Been a long slow job but thankfully, original sole not glued down and floor sections will be easily removable if necessary; best part...there will be no more trampoline effect down the center isle with the delaminating original thin ply/veneer with wood splinters/chips falling in the bilge !
