A friend of mine has a cabinet shop with a spray booth and was nice enough to let me play in it. These photos were all taken in his shop.
Here is one of the samples we tried on a test piece. This is aniline die dissolved in alcohol.
WOW, I really like the color!
We used his Festool sander for the final sanding.
I had to stir the dye for over an hour.
On goes the die:
Sanding in between coats of sanding sealer and lacquer:
Erich sprayed the final coats of lacquer for me:
And this is the result!
This took about three hours, and I spent another four hours in my shop sanding all the components of the table to get them ready for assembly. So Total Project Time So Far: 48 Hours.
