I’ve been making crokinole boards and I’ve ruined some finished decks by my clamping procedure and need some advice.
I finish the deck and rub it out after it cures, then I clamp it down to the finished base. Last time I put a towel over the deck and piled sand bags over that to weigh it down. The sand evened out the weight but I had an imprint of the towel fibres left in the finish. I’m wondering how to avoid this?
Things I’m thinking of trying next…
Should I put the sand bags directly on the surface?
Is one of these options better than the other? Or is there something else I am overlooking?
For finish I was using polyacrylic. Now I am using lacquer. Perhaps that alone will make a difference but I don’t want to take any chances. I am waiting 10 days before rubbing out by the way.
Thanks in advance.
