A Somewhat Heath Robinson Spray Booth


It’s been a busy few weeks since Christmas, including being Best Man at my best friend’s wedding on Saturday.

I did however manage to get a brief hour in the workshop yesterday to get things set up in advance of spraying the lacquer for the Telecaster build.

Having tested the compressor and airline equipment I then erected a small freestanding greenhouse to use as a spray booth. Given that my current workshop is a 1950s prefabricated garage I stand very little chance of keeping it entirely dust free while spraying, but the greenhouse should provide a clean space in which to hang the guitar while applying the finish over the next couple of weeks.
