Default Finishing Booth

How hard would it be to set up a spray area in the corner of the basement or garage to spray finish instead of brushing? And still be safe, of course.

It would depend a lot on what finish you plan to use - lacquer needs to be very well vented to the outside (and you'll still get the odor in the house). Water-base is not quite so bad, not quite as toxic but should still be vented because of the smell.

Hmmmmmmmmm

I just may keep brushing poly and only use lacquer from rattle cans when I can have the garage door open. Those rattle cans are just too expensive to use on a regular basis.

Quite awhile back, years, I changed to pretty much just using Titebond II, thinned 50/50 or so, with water, as a finish. Dries way fast, putting on multiple coats takes a short time, no smell that I've noticed, and seems to be quite durable. Gives a nice sort of amber finish. I use this on my canes, easy to put on 3-4 coats in about 15 minutes or so, really makes the inner plies of plywood stand out, and lasts well. I tried spraying lacquer, once, smell was horrible, and to my eye didn't look any better than my Titebond finish, tossed the rest of the can. Yes, I've used poly, oil and water based, and prefer the Titebond. Can't say it will be everyone's, cuppa, but does just what I want.

I'm going to try your Titebond finish... you've made me curious. Sounds like it dries fast enough to help minimize dust issues.

Just tried the Titebond finish on a piece of scrap --- don't like it. Back to the drawing board.

take that piece of scrap and set it in the sun for awhile.... a few hours anyways,,,
horizontally and vertically...
check for blistering, daisies, fish eyes, spawling, creep, plasticizing, tackiness, running and discoloration...
let us know what ya see/find..

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....
