    Check my HVLP plans please

    I have HVLP Conversion guns, and I too like the Resisthane by Hood. I do thin mine however, looking for 17-20 seconds through the viscosity cup, and use a 1.4 mm tip. I use this Pre-Cat laquer on all sorts of Furniture and Cabinetry, and have no complaints. A word about the price - Yes, a...

    shellac spray gun selection

    I generally spray shellac with a 1.4mm HVLP gun. I usually set my supply air to 40psi, and then adjust the gun internally for the propper volumme, and fan. Believe it or not, the Harbor Freight gun which regularly goes on sale for $15 does a good job of laying down finish, although you need a...

    Slower solvents for shellac??

    A little laquer retarder may slow down the alcohol evaporation as well. Just test it on some scrap first, as not all systems will be compatable with shellac/alcohol. They're not designed to work togeather, it's just that some of them do. Hope this helps! Gregory

    Any idea where to get 3-4" dia bamboo?

    I was going to say the same thing - Look right at the end of my road. We have some thickets here that cover acres, and acres. I bet some of the plants are 8 inches in diameter - And the faster you cut it down, the faster it grows!!! Heck, I should start considering some Asian inspired...

    Morris chair legs

    Dick, Generally, I make my Morris chair legs like Gustav Stickley did, but making a lamination of 3 boards, then capping the seams of that lamination with two thick veneers. So of the 5 boards I use, only one is "never seen". I just save the pieces with less figure on them to be used for...

    For furniture making, 4X materials may not be a good formula - But I'll tell you, for cabinetry, it seems to really nail it. For the longest time, I lauged at the 4x materials charge - But then I started going thorough old bids, as well as pricing surveys from Cabinet Maker magazine, and also...

    Craft Show display question

    EZ Ups are the standard out there - But one piece of advice that's priceless, especially if you're doing outdoor shows is EZ UP TENTS ALSO MAKE VERY GOOD KITES! Be sure to weigh it down! I've seen lots of EZ ups take off, not stopping untill they hit another tent, customer, or car going...
