Steve, Most of my work is done in sprayed lacquer. I don't do much finishing myself. There is no outside ventilation in my basement shop, so to promote household harmony about all I can do for myself is outside when weather permits.
The biggest problem i have right now is that my regular finisher has retired & I don't trust just anyone to work on what I have built. I walked out on one prospect when wanted to go over the whole piece with 120 grit because 'I had sanded it too smooth'. Of course, that would have destroyed all the fine detail I had put into the piece. Paul
