Day 5 - It’s done!

I applied the masking tape to the timber surrounding the glass and changed the Sikaflex in the caulking gun for waterproof silicone.  Then the glass splashback edges and joins were carefully sealed.  The excess silicone was removed using the same method employed for the Sikaflex.  Finally, all the tape was removed.

I’ve been saving the oak plugs that need to go into the screw holes in the timber mounting blocks.

The plugs have been glued into place and are awaiting the removal of the excess timber using the chisel I purchased from Homebase, Tamworth.

A couple of coats of varnish and the last part of the task was to fit the chrome power socket bezels.

Jan thinks the glass on each side of the galley is a different colour.  But it’s just the sunlight (I hope)

Looks stunning, Tom and Jan. I know who I'm calling when serious DIY is required!
Cheers, Marilyn

Looks very smart, well done. A good tip the tape and sealant.

Looking good Tom but what happens if Jan decides she has changed her mind about the colour?

She will get a cold chisel and leather gloves for Christmas
