So I’m moving in a week, and I have a lot of stuff to get done for an upcoming show which is in a couple weeks. I’ve got a bunch to make and have stuff made that needs finish applied. Was wondering if it’s fine to apply finish outside in the sun? Planned to set a couple tables up outside tomorrow and put finish on stuff while I work on other things in my shop. I plan on using poly and spray lacquer on the different items.

I think poly will get stuff stuck all over it because of the long dry times.
I have had lacquer bubble up in the sun.
(I’m not sure about rattle can lacquer, I don’t use it.)

Don’t think it’s a good idea
