Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Got rid of my problem with the runs....
Fixed the door I screwed up too...

I cut the paint down as flush as I could with a razor blade, then scuffed the area, wiped a thin coat of Crackshot on it, sanded that down, spot sprayed, scuffed the whole door again, then applied one more coat.
I tried to go too light, so it's got a bit of texture to it. I may scuff it and spray one more coat because I'm still set up for it.

Just about finished at this reno I'm on, but the HO keep making last minute changes that are continuing to prolong the completion...
I just want to get back to my other one and start siding...

Are they the hollow masonitish doors? Those always have a slight texture without a ton of work.

Nope...one is solid pine (actually turned out decent) ,4 are fir or old growth pine (original to the house), one is hollow core, and there's one smooth solid core.
I got texture because I misted the repair coat and didn't sand before applying it.
By the end of the day today I had time to fix it.
Sanded the door with 100 grit, wiped it down, spot sprayed the details, and then applied a heavy, even coat and let it lay flat until I could pick it up without worrying.

It's what I had on hand from drywall prep... It was pretty worn down by this point.

220 wet, then 320 wet on that run and you probably could have gotten away without repainting it. Maybe a final 400 polish. Depending on the paint sheen.

I can wet sand a satin run with 220 and you have to bounce light off the repair just right to make it out.

The trick is to not burn the paint while sanding.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


1 of 2 custom vanities we made for a master bath. Had my cab shop make the boxes for me and then I cut and fit the fronts and panels. These have Salice push-to-open glides with soft close. Royal pain to get everything aligned and working right with solid wood slabs.

Epoxied the voids prior to cutting the components. Mitered edges with grain matched corners.

Took the pieces over to our lumber yard and ran them through their wide belt this morning...that thing is awesome!!

With all the last minute changes and the "while you're here's..." I very well might still be here in May...

Nope, just good old fashioned ineptitude.

When I visited Tom he showed me how to do it by creating a run and then lifting it.

You take a piece of tape a few inches long, hold it in both hands with the sticky side facing the work piece, and roll/push (for lack of a better term) it into the run.

You don't even have to be that careful or precise while doing it, and it just works... Obviously you want to do it as soon as possible so the paint can level out around the area you just removed the run.

Robie,

Travis explained the process well. Works very well, timed properly the area will fill itself back in. This comes from my automotive days, if you ran Imron it was hard as granite, it take 36 grit to grind the run out. It was always best to lift the run.

I though I had a YT video up on how to accomplish this, wasn't there. I'll look on my phone to see if I can find it.

I highly recommend getting fine and corse run chasers/de-nibbing files, and a razor run trimmer.

Tom

I'd really like to see that video, if it exists. Travis did probably as well as can be expected via text, but my text-to-video just isn't working all that well.

Travis, did you shoot a video on your phone?

If not, should get to this by the end of the month...
