It is getting too cold to spray outside, so I decided to make a small spray booth. I wanted it to be cheap, able to be stored away, lite and have negative air flow.
Walking around Lowe’s, I came across this 27 gallon storage container for $9 (on sale, usually $12). It looked like the perfect size for my guitar spraying project. I also picked up some 14×24 furnace filters. I also needed a 4” dryer vent duct as well as 20’ of flexible aluminum foil AC duct. The small cyclone fan I picked up at a drug store.
Along with a roll of duct tape, I concocted this spray booth. It works well. The negative air flow pressure generated y the fan seems to be sufficient. When in use, I run the end of the hose out my garage by opening the garage door a few inches (I don’t have a window or exterior door).
I also made a poor man’s version of a freehand holder that saved me about $90 if bought commercially. It consists of a 1 1/4” dowel rod and some supports pocket-holed to a base that is clamped to my assembly table.
I am happy with the results even though it isn’t the prettiest.
