A busy day today, got a bit done.
Cutting the slots around the lift-gate wider so I can install J-channel to protect the edges of the Homasote from damage when the gate goes up and down.
We needed to route a relief slot in the Homasote to allow the J-Channel to sit flush on the surface.
The same process for the J-Channel that will go around the pop-out in the middle of the table.
Next step is routing all the edges of the Homasote to be flush with the fascia base layer.
Touching up the routing and base layer of fascia.
Sanding all the seams and screw "bumps" before filling everything.
Time to clean off all the sanding debris after the sanding.
Last step of the day, first coat of fill for all the screw heads and seams. When this dries, I'll sand it all and touch up anything we missed on the first pass. Then I'll install the J-Channel around the lift-gate and the lift-out panel.
