Set up a spray space

The smaller the spray gun, the smaller the work area you'll need. But even a touch-up sprayer can be dialed back to apply water-based finish in a tabletop spray booth made from a large cardboard box.

Whether spraying water-based or flammable finishes indoors, position a fan to draw fresh air into the space, around your workpiece, and toward a window or door without pointing the fan directly at your workpiece. Avoid drawing flammable vapors into the fan motor, where they could be ignited. And wear a respirator made to filter organic vapors.

Then arrange a low-angle light to reflect where your finish lands and call attention to any missed spots. To make small and medium-size projects easier to rotate for spraying, place them on pieces of cardboard or a turntable.

It would also be a great service to your member readers to stop all the pop up ads wanting us to subscribe to Wood. Every article on one email article creates a pop up with every page. A terrible intrusion on your loyal subscribers and readers

It would be so customer-friendly to post each story/article as a .pdf file, and easy, too. So, why not?
