    This video gives a good overview of spray finishing of furniture.

    I can’t argue with the results…but his methods are all backwards.

    And DANG is his spray rig loud!

    That is a interesting video. Something I would like get into the future.

    Jon why do you say methods are all backwards? I agree his spray rig was loud.

    Using the paste wax as a filler for one. Filling grain/pores should be done Under the finish as the was will just rub off (and transfer color as it is a tinted wax).

    His spraying technique wasn’t great either. Short narrow passes that will create stop/start marks frequently. The gun wasn’t perpendicular to the work piece which can create an unevenness in the finish. (More finish hits the wood near the gun than at the end of the spray pattern. He also started the spray over the work piece. You should begin spraying before the pattern hits the wood.

    Just to name a few…

    Those all make sense. Thanks!
