    Maybe I just need better ventilation because it’s clear that the chemicals are effecting my brain. It’s not just the fact that I sprayed this piece with it sitting on a paper towel, I actually picked it up to spray the hard to reach areas and got lacquer all over the bottom. If that’s not enough, I set the damn thing back on the paper towel and let it sit overnight. It’s not even a lesson learned kind of moment because I knew better. Just gotta smile and shake my head. 548A678B-84D1-46FC-8DDC-4DE5C11DB478.jpeg 9CFCFCEA-3D3C-4091-8D0C-BBFF040A54DC.jpeg 7578E49B-A54D-4380-A185-C784695B4FDA.jpeg 6AB086DC-3A24-4D1C-9811-FE2C75C7B863.jpeg

    You need to buy name brand paper towels instead of the cheap ones!

    Actually what works quite well is nailing plates from the BORG. That was one of the tips in the AAW Gizmos and Gadgets session. They work quite well.

    You are way too nice. Suggesting that I’m just cheap instead of stupid. I know better though, lacquer sticks to the expensive towels too.

    The photo shows a simple painting fixture driven by a rotisserie motor that locks into the dovetail recess and that can be sprayed around then for subsequent coats rotate to a different position.
    The simple and best solution is to spray the inside and outside separately.
    The way that I have done it with small bark edge bowls is to do the inside as you hold the bowl in your gloved hand then hold the bowl with the fingers of your left hand contacting the bark only to spray the outside. The bowl is then set to dry on triangular strips of wood or nails driven through a piece of scrap, but that too will cause marks in the finish.

    Cheap , as in no cost I was going to trash them. Old bandsaw blades, cut to length and fold in v or box shape as you like . Use with the teeth up and do not slam a bowl down onto one DAMHIKT.
    You will learn there are many more things to learn in finishing like don't leave lacquer in the gun overnight, but we will save that for another day

    I love seeing these contraptions that wood turners create. Thanks for the ideas!! Some of you guys are real lucky we aren’t neighbors. You’d have to kick me out of your workspace!

    Great tip, I sold my bandsaw and have a few worn out blades laying around.

    I highly recommend a CatScat Mat from Lee Valley (Item BL662). It works like a field of painters points but in a much denser concentration.

    Texturing and decorating bowls is a big thing. Just think of this as the first step to a whole new technique!
