« Part 7: finishing booth - table Part 8 of Shop Updates series no next part

well the spray booth is finally complete! i am so excited as it works wonderfully and i could not ask for a better spray booth. for now. and i can spray almost anything that i want now! so here is a picture of it from the outside. we just sectioned it off with some tarps to keep overspray from getting everywhere as well as make it a more enclosed space so the fan in the window will work better.


then here is the inside. i have my nice big table for spraying as well as some halogen light so i can spray once it is dark. works really nice. then when i spray i have both windows open and one window had a little window fan in it. my most recent project is on the table now. a tiger maple quilt rack.


and here is my results. a picture of the finish on the tiger maple quilt rack which i will be posting later.


hope everyone likes it!

Awesome! Love that Tiger Maple. Congratulations on your spray booth. I recognize that quilt rack . . . I do believe that will make Charles smile with pride!

Happy New Year!

Great booth. I just picked up an air compressor and sprayer for CHristmas and need to make a booth too.

Good job and it doesn’t take too much space.

One thing you might want to try is to make a curtain rod from electrical conduit or PVC water pipes and suspend it from your ceiling. You can hook up your curtains to that and they will move out of your way when not in use.

Along with what Bob said, put some hooks in the ceiling. Take some old coat hangers and cut them apart to make suspension wires to hang up your parts to be sprayed. Much easier to spray stuff in a vertical position.

i don’t know that its easier to spray vertical. i think that flat surfaces are easier to spray horizontal.

Just be very careful about the type fan you are using, concentrating the vapors can prove to be very hazardous with just an ordinary fan. If you are sucking the vapors through the fan, a better option is positive pressure and exhaust the fumes through your open windows (using the fan to force air into your booth through a filter) . Want it to be a Safe and Prosperous New Year for you, and keep a fire extinguisher handy!
