I absolutely agree that ambient air movement speeds up drying/curing to a great extent. I was taught in a root cause analysis seminar to always look at both extremes to see if there is any correlation to the question at hand. In this case it is simple … if you apply the finish and place the piece in a very small. tightly closed environment, it will dry, eventually, but it will take forever. OTOH, if you place it out in a windstorm, it will dry more quickly, although the finish may suffer from quality issues. So … it stands to reason that SOME air movement, at least sufficient to move away the evaporated solvents is a good thing.
