How to make a quarterboard
The teak panels and finely sanded and given many coatings of UV protective clear. We use spar varnish, but it requires seasonal upkeep in the harshest climates. We always finish carved letters with 23 karat gold leaf. With a fine lettering brush, the lettering comes to life with contrast, which the outline provides. At least six coats of varnish cover the lettering to protect it from the sun and saltwater. Before the final coat, we give the boars thorough sand. Often we will use a sprayed spar urethane as the final coat. It is also oil-based, and so it’s compatible with the varnish.
