      Thanks Arch, yeah, there is a method to my madness. The way the ceiling joists are sistered for the 36' clear span, there are only a few areas that are 24" spacing to fit the florescent fixtures flush mounted. They are the centers of the (3) 12 x 20 work areas.The rest of the joist spacing is 22 1/2" so no fit. So I ran the down lights over all the counter areas and in the hall areas at 4' spacing. I wanted flush mount lighting because the ceiling is only 8' and ive broke a few bulbs over my head swinging boards in the past lol.

      Plus they will look good in the pine planking

      • Figured it was something like that. woodworking projects are good at taking out surface mounted light fixtures......just keep looking down till the glass quits falling lol

          I've lost track of how many times I have had to do that...usually followed by several choice phrases which I shall not repeat here.

          • Update:

            Finally got the hull all sanded again.





            Then I tinted some resin and put on a barrier coat. I decided to use tinted resin in place of the DPLF, because I need that for another project. I plan to give it a final fair over the 1st coat of resin with tinted filler, then a few more coats and a final sanding before the build primer.





            Its too cold to paint now anyway, so I may as well keep fairing. Still need some shaping on the nose too.

                  • Thanks guys, temps are headed in the wrong direction next week, hoping to at least finish fairing, any maybe pre drill for the hardware.
