In order for you to blow yourself up you need to reach a certain concentration of solvent/lacquer in the air. You would probably pass out before you reach the explosive level. You should be more worried about using a proper respirator than blowing up. Specially if you are spraying in an enclosed space.

Let me put it this way, unless you have explosion proof lighting, your light bulb can cause the explosion. So, as you posted, turn off the heating (after all the spray CAN catch on fire if you have open elements heaters) spray your table and then a couple of minutes of airing should take care of the airborne concentration.

Nice job on the table by the way.
