Wow guys! It was very nice to wake up to the multiple kudos...  Thanks for the support.

I keep getting the colorblind comment.  My type of color blindness is not a severe as it sounds.  I would almost call it lazy color awareness.  I, at times, if colors (particularly Reds and Greens) are the same saturation/shade can get them mixed up.  But for example if I look at a fire truck or the dress from that blonde in the Matrix it is very much red; no doubt.  Where it gets tricky is say a forest green and a dusty brown right next together without any supporting colors to assist in differentiating them...

I always get the "what color is my shirt?"  I know what color your shirt is but if you go stand next to that brown light post I might get confused...

I know NOTHING about it, but I have a feeling that washing a poster folded might be dangerous.

Well I am sure Dario has an answer but I think if you sandwich it between the two mylar sheets and soft roll them that you can then just submerge the soft roll...the paper would never touch other paper...

AWESOME!
im excited to see how it goes!
i have been thinking about attempting to learn how to linen back myself but could find hardly anything what so ever on the net?
and also couldnt find any courses i could take to learn about the chemistry involved in de acidifying the paper?
if you come up with half decent results (and im sure you will!) i think i may follow suit.
my only problems are right now.
a lack of space, which by that i mean NO chance at all of doing anything with it. but i am working on the space.
and the cost of it too, but if you already trod the path it makes it easier to follow.
best of luck with it and really looking forward to your exploits :)
I don't know much, but i do know what my eyes are telling me!

Yes, I agree, you will need very strong glue and you might end up feeling a bit stiff afterwards.

Make sure it's reversible in case you meet someone who prefers you in your raw state.

Ok, so that involves removing any sticky bits, a good bath to get clean, deacidification, a good mounting, and if not good... touching up with a pencil. Are you sure???

Phase 1 - Step 1: Building a Washing and Mounting Table (Entry 2)

So I was back at this morning finally having the day off minus watching my daughter but she quickly became daddy's little helper.

Started work on the top:

Not sure how much woodworking any of you do but if you don't have a table saw it can be tricky at time to cut plywood sheets.  Since my table saw is buried in the back of the garage I decided to apply this method.  You can just mark you length plus the distance from the edge of the circular saw platform to the blade and use it as a guide rail.  This is a great trick and you don't need a big table saw to make good cuts. You can see in the third pic that the guide board was screwed to the piece I was not going to use.  I did have trouble cutting without a helper so I was about an 1/8 off at the end; oops no matter.





I had extra plywood lying around but it was only 1/2' thick so I strapped some 3/4" on the back to stiffen it up.



Now I don't want any sharp edges on the table so I quarter-rounded the edges with a router.



I then put on two coats of garage floor epoxy to waterproof the table top.  This is a highquality impact resistant acrylic. I sanded it down with 120 and 220 grit sandpaper to get if fairly smooth.  The mylar will do most of the work on the table. 





Phase 1 - Step 2: Modifying Old Poster Box for Soaking Tray (Entry 1)

The Old Poster Box (look familiar?)


PVC shower barrier very waterproof.





To do this right I had to adhere the PVC sheet to the box and I did so with commercial spray adhesive and then worked the PVC into the corners.





 

Now for the drain. I had previously drilled a hole for the drain you can see in the above photo. I cut the PVC at the hole and slid the drain in and then on the back made another block with the same size hole gobbed caulk and tightened it all up.

   

Time for a water test.  My daughter like this part the best.  And success!

   

So what's next.  Gotta move it all in finish off the table etc.  Then I need to make frames and stretch canvas.  Plus the photos of the candidate posters...

Wow, great start Charlie! I am willing to bet that your first backed poster will turn out better then that "Dr.No" Chris Cloutier did Mel.

Good grief.  Your wife must love you!  Imagine all those little handyman jobs that always need to be done.
At least in your house there is half a chance they do actually get done!

Very impressed!

Impressive Charlie (and I really like the drain you added) - I think I own a couple screwdrivers but that's about it  :-[

Can't wait to see the guinea pig poster nominated for the test drive!
