I am planning on painting my risers and then stenciling the names of our favorite ski areas on them. Gotta find someone who has a crickut printer and vinyl to print on.
KTOWN..... Great idea...

How about favorite runs:.....

...Rolex...3oclock...Pallyvachini...waterfall...ou thouse...gunbarrel...chute 75..... or maybe school marm....

Grand Review, The Slot and Yonder just after they are groomed. All at Vail. Hell, anything deep blue or black just groomed. I love steep, just no bumps, at least until my knees are replaced.

Pretty much anything Blue at Breck plus Spruce before it is skied out.

American and Shock off of 9.

Double Jack, Centennial and Crystal off of 10.

Love the Blues at Bachelor's Gulch. Not as crowded as the rest of Beaver which isn't as crowded as the rest of the I-70 resorts.

And School Marm? only when I have to.

Get your knees fixed....BUMPS ARE OUR FRIENDS..... Think of them as breasts of snow....it makes face plants palatable.

Re: Using Melamine paint on new oak Floor risers


I'd use a hybrid like advance or proclassic hybrid. Scuff-X might be a good option there, actually.... And foam rollers suck. I think a brush will get you better results, but if you are set on a roller, Id recomend a 3/16" prodooz, or flock lined foam.

Re: Using Melamine paint on new oak Floor risers


Hey mark sr, do you think I need to first paint new untreated oak risers with an oil based primer? Or a non oil based primer? Or maybe no primer since this contains primer?

Thanks

Re: Using Melamine paint on new oak Floor risers


Got to ask why you are using oak if it's new? Generally pine, poplar or even plywood is used in new construction when the risers get painted.



Oak has an open grain that many don't care for once painted so you might want to consider using a grain filler first. Oil base primer [preferably an enamel undercoater] is best and if there is any tannin bleed it will seal it. A latex undercoater normally does fine [just won't seal any stains in the wood]


IMO primer and paint in one is just a marketing ploy. A separate dedicated primer is always best when a primer is needed.

Re: Using Melamine paint on new oak Floor risers


Awesome, at first we were going to stain the treads and risers the same but now that they are all cut and sanded, my wife decided she likes the look of white paint risers better.

They are rather grainy, thanks for the tip, I will look into wood grain filler before priming.

I will also look for an Oil based primer with an enamel undercoater.


Great advice

Thank you.
