Murphy Bed #6: Face Frame Assembly

1827 days ago by Gene47 | 2 comments »

Thursday I spent most of the morning researching for a spray gun then did some sanding and got what I have done so far ready to assemble. Friday I got some small things finished up getting ready to make the final push to complete the outer case for the bed. Before going out to the shop I confirmed my order for a new HVLP spray gun and it should be here by the first of the week. I then attached the frame structure to the face panels using construction adhesive and screws. Then ...

Well, I was considering what to put down in digital ink next and decided on a few different things. I wanted to talk about the guns that I use first.I have six guns in use at any given time.

Finishing #1: The Big Mean World of Finishing

1902 days ago by Scott Parsons | 8 comments »

I’ve been thinking about what I do for a living and how I came to the level of finishing that I’m at. I’m what I would call a Modernist Finisher. I use whatever I can to make my job more efficient, cheaper and pursue better quality. A lot of people will say that these three things don’t go well with each other and I guess that’s true for some things in life.

Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #1: The Proud Pauper's Way

1904 days ago by Scott Parsons | 2 comments »

Well, it all started just a couple weeks before Christmas. I knew it was coming but didn’t appreciate the impact it would have. My girlfriend, Heather, and I decided that we wanted to live together but I didn’t want to leave my living space because it’s in the building I work in and I always wanted that warehouse living experience before I decided to truck it back out to the country. When I moved into this 500sq. foot shed-within-a-bigger-shed it was a nightmare. I kne...
