One of the projects that I make have a bunch of narrow pieces. They’re mainly 2 1/2” wide and vary in length from 10 1/2 to 14 1/2. 2 of them are 5” wide by 12” long with a total of nine 2 1/2” pieces so yea a lot of edges and faces. Anyway… I offer them painted and stained but with the weather turning cold I can’t spray them with my HVLP gun outside. I think I will sell more painted ones than stained ones so my question is do any of you have any tips on cutting back the time it takes to finish these. I need to cut down on finishing time but don’t want to risk quality. Is this possible? I thought about leaving the 2 1/2” wide pieces as long as possible and painting BEFORE crosscutting but I would have to do the ends anyway and touch up where I left hand prints etc. Plus I put a roundover on certain pieces nut not all. Any tips would be helpful. Pictured below is enough parts for 3 stools.
