A professional-looking finish is the dream of most woodworkers. One way to achieve it is through modern spray finishing. Spray finishing is a lot less trouble than it used to be - recent technological breakthroughs have made a previously messy and expensive process safer, easier and cheaper. The development of water-based finishes and HVLP spray systems has put spray finishing within the grasp of any small-shop woodworker willing to learn the technique and make a modest investment in equipment. Andy Charron, a professional woodworker, has been experimenting with spray finishes for some years and has experience with a number of systems. He has put this expertise into a comprehensive volume that explains the entire process. Charron describes how each system works and how to choose the system that's right for the kind of work you do - from guns and spray booths to compressors, turbines, air lines, filters and safety equipment. You'll also learn how to work with lacquers, crosslinked finishes, shellac, polyurethane and water-based finishes; how to color, stain and tone the wood; how to spray contact cement; and how to clean your equipment when you're done. A troubleshooting chart at the end of the book will help you identify and solve problems at a glance.
