Which HVLP spray finishing system is right for you?

“Don’t be afraid of spray finishing,” were the first words of advice from my good friend, fellow woodworker and coatings expert Julian Hay, who is also the president of Associated Coating Services. Hay has sprayed just about everything from jewellery boxes to oil refineries. Hay continued, “Get some drop cloths and a box fan with a furnace filter over it. Then get a bunch of cardboard or scrap MDF and start spraying it. It’s like learning any other woodworking skill: get out the scrap and make your mistakes on it. Get out the good wood once you stop making mistakes.”
