Re: Maple Table


I love the stuff. I found it sprays best (like all waterbornes) at 70 degrees or better. When the temp drops its viscosity goes up. I also found it likes to spray and lay out best when I use a 2.0 tip and don't reduce it any. I used to spray it with a 1.7 and about 10-20% water. I am am pretty much a Target Coatings fan. The only thing I found is it tends to get get dirty quick unless its topcoated with something like the EM7000 or 9000...although I am thinking if I waxed it that would hold off the dirt as well.

Re: Maple Table

Re: Maple Table


I use Zinnser BIN to prime all my stuff. Covers well, block tannin and sands to a glass smooth finish. Shellac is about the only solvent I use.

Re: Maple Table


As usual, nice work and nice pics. What's in the mason jar? Zinser BIN? I use that as well, but only for plywood. I wish there was a latex base that hid grain just as well. I'm spoiled with the ease of latex cleanup and low odor.

Re: Maple Table


I buy the EM6500 in bulk, then put it in a mason jar when I need to get a smaller amount tinted. I take it to a local Ben Moore store and they tint it for me.

After i got the hang of it i really liked the 6500. This was just something simple that my mom was bugging about for a couple years.

Re: Maple Table


Yeah...the biggest thing I found was to keep it warm (around 70 degrees) and spray it with a 2.0mm tip in my conversion HVLP guns. The more and more I use target coatings the more and more I like them.

Re: Maple Table


How did you join the maple boards together? I am just starting to experiment with fine woodworking and am curious how with just 3 clamps you are able to keep the boards from twisting or bowing during glue-up, and perfectly flat?

Re: Maple Table


There is actually 6 or 7 clamps in that photo. The boards were surfaced and edge jointed so they were pretty flat and easy to glue up.

Re: Maple Table


Any special tips for getting finishing done as the weather gets colder? I don't see a spray booth so I assume you just open your doors up and spray. I don't have an HVLP setup, I just use a siphon gun and it puts a lot of dust into the air. If I don't either get it sucked out or move the piece somewhere else for drying I'm in trouble. Do you have any of the same issues?

Re: Maple Table


Its all waterborne....so nothing is explosive or smelly (except for shellac when I do use that but I don't spray it in large quantity or at a high psi...)

This is how I spray when is cool out. The shop is heated with propane.





There is an exhaust fan on the other side of the filters. The filters collect the over spray, every now and then I walk outside and blow them out with a blow gun. The air is just circulating with-in the shop.

That in itself does a remarkably good job...compared to nothing anyway. I also wear respirator. I used to wear a half mask, but I just upped to a full face for the hell of it.

Re: Maple Table


Cool. I'm working on devising some kind of spraying setup. Was thinking of pulling air from outside and sending it back out the other end. Never considered circulating it withing the shop. That would help with the heat issue. Thanks for posting the pics.
