Go-anywhere mini spraybooth

I like to finish my small turned projects with aerosol spray lacquer, but don’t like the fumes in my shop. So I made this portable spray booth from scrap plywood. The simple 12×16×16" box features two lazy-Susan bearings—one inside the top that holds a cup hook for hanging small parts, and one in the bottom for larger vessels. When it comes time to spray finish, I carry the box outside using the drawer-pull handle. The lazy-Susan bearings let me rotate the parts as I spray, for full coverage. Then, I just carry the box back into the shop for drying.
