    make sure you apply knotting to the knots or you will get brown stains coming through the finish due to the seepage of the resin thus ruining the hard work.

    You would have no need whatsoever to apply a knotting agent if you were to use the aluminium primer, one thing regarding the application of any primer that is paramount is to make sure that you paint the edges of the workpiece, you should allow the primer to flood into the end grains prior to applying your finish coats. This will then offer the utmost protection and failiure to do so is often the cause of a premature breakdown of the paint system.

    the stiles on the bottom stable door seem to have been spliced together due to previous rot. have you made sure the wood above these old repairs has not also started to rot?

    The op will have a better idea with regard to any decaying within the timber after the removal of the paint.

    Burning and sanding the paint from these doors will take some time the first door apart from a little bit of filling looks to be in good nick for its age.
    Would you strip all the doors first or do each one at a time prep and undercoat before moving on to the next.Thank you G

    me too. It adheres very well and is durable esp outdoors in the weather, and also deals knots and sap.

    look no need to stalk me. maybe we got off on the wrong foot due to the fact that starspark seemed to have jumped on me on a personal not professional level and i carried it on a bit. i have done a decorating apprenticeship and have been a decorator for over 15 years.

    i think this would be a good place to bounce ideas off each other to benefit other people. i won't be rising to starspark any more and will give people the benefit of my years in this trade.
