well i have alot of finishing stuff. i am also getting a lot into the spraying so the chance arose to get my own little finishing booth in the corner of my attic right near 2 windows so of course i jumped on the opertunity. just to give you a perspective. after i cleaned out my finishing cabinet here was my stuff. and my table saw is 4 foot 3 inches by 27 inches
so this is where i will cover the construction of the table. its not fine woodworking but my woodworking passion really can be seen through this. here is the table top. it is 77 inches by 44 inches. all the joinery is little stub tenons with 3 in deck screws in them. very strong and stable. i didn’t glue because my parents are doing my attic over in about a year so this is only temporary. then i will build a shed outside :)
then the legs. simple enough. just screwed in place. i got the height by holding my spray gun at a height that is comfortable to me and then subtracting 8 inches. my final height was 30 inches.
then i flipped it over and screwed on the 3/8” OSB for the top. again simple enough. i chose OSB because i just need a surface. it doesn’t need to be 100 percent flat, it doesn’t need to be sturdy i have the supports for that, and its going to be covered so this was the cheapest so i went for it.
now you also might notice that at the ends there is a few inches where the 2×4 sticks out. this is so i can make a little holder for the rosin paper or in this case builders paper. this is essential because once you spray a finish if it gets on a surface that you can’t remove then next time you spray dyes the dyes will sit on the surface and you’ll get dye all over your hands and on your workpiece without knowing it. don’t ask me how i know this :)
now here’s a picture of me with the finished table!
next to come is some shelves for all my finishes and then some tarps to enclose it and i’m good to go.
