A few questions if you will:
I’m making wall mounted display cases – they’re 19”w x 45”h x 4 1/2”d (I’ll post some pictures as I get closer to finishing them).
I’ve made 2 so far – 1 I used 5/8 MDF. This was my first and created it as sort of a template and trial and error process to see if I could even do it. The 2nd I used wood, nothing special – just some 5/8 plywood from HD.
So far the biggest obstacle I had to overcome was the door – I made it like a picture frame with a cut out on the inside for the glass which is another topic later…
They’re not 100% quality but decent for my first attempts at building anything besides jigs that I can actually display in my houses LOL.
So now the questions:
I’m spraying primer on both – is that the correct/preferred method of applying primer to bare wood?
Next question: I want to paint them Hi Gloss Black. Should I spray the paint or should I roll/brush it?
Thanks in advance for any and all help in advance – it’s much appreciated.
