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. Sometimes I have multiple projects all with unique colours. I have one good quality gun. It’s a Devilbiss with a 1 litre cup. I also have a Lemmer and the other four are low quality Husky brand from Home Depot. All my guns are gravity fed and have 1/2 liter cup except for the Devilbiss.I&#...

I don’t want to come across as a know-it-all so I’d like to point out that my finishing experience is...

Finishing #1: The Big Mean World of Finishing

02-03-2009 05:59 AM 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. What else is true in life is balance and with proper balance the finishing process can be all of these...

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

02-02-2009 04:59 AM 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...

Spraying a finish- stain

12-01-2008 06:49 AM by James Lango | 9 comments »

Can anyone give me advice on spraying on stain.Every project I ever built was always hand stained. Now i hear/read more and more about spaying stain on. It seems to have its advantages, even coat, and less time consuming. From what i read, I would spray a stain on then rub off the excess. Can someone share their ideas or tips with me? I have a small (1/2 quart) spray gun and compressor- used for auto paint. Can i use that? If so- is HIGH pressure OK to spray stain? OR do i have to go ...
