Woodworking – Spray Finishing History, Benefits and Tips

By November 16, 2017Uncategorized

Any furniture or creation made of wood is beautiful in itself, but of course, it would look so much better is you add a little of this and that in it. And the "this and that" that I'm talking about is what's called a "finish."

Icing is to cake and finishing is to woodworks. But unlike making icing for a cake, learning how to use a spray finish is much harder and a lot more complicated. Now, before I go on to discuss the ABCs of spray finishing, let's do a little time travel.

Before the invasion of the spray cans, a roller or a brush were the tools most used to paint the almost ready woodworks. And yes, it requires more time, consumes more time and takes a lot of time to really master. And you can just imagine how thankful woodworkers were with the time and effort slashed off from them with these spray cans. Aside from that, it gives a beautiful look to the end product.

But simple as it sounds, a skilled worker is still needed to complete this task- flawlessly. Cabinets, dining sets, shelves, and sideboards can all be painted and finished in a spray booth. A wood working product that is painted using spray finishing looks much better than those that are painted by rollers and brushes. In most instances it helps stop any imperfections.

With finishing, you can effectively paint wood products. This would include toys, bedroom furniture, conference tables, pianos, dining room tables and different pieces of office furniture.

Spray finishing booths will not cost you a fortune but it can not be considered as cheap too. But it is something that you can consider as a very wise investment. Aside from the quality outputs, it can last for a long, long time.

Now, if you think that buying a booth is a little bit too much for you, there are some companies that can provide services in painting wood working products for you. Just be sure to ask for a sample or demonstration before you get their service. It is really not surprising why more and more woodworkers use spray finishing. It makes your end product more beautiful and of excellent service.
