Finally... ready... for... varnish! After a long winter of sanding, recoating, and sanding again, I finally hit the hull with 220 last night and wiped down the whole kitten kaboodle with thinner. So, finally my baby is ready for varnish! I still need to mount the hip brace plates, but those will be done in the next couples days as I start to build my paint booth.
Speaking of which, I was going to do a 'tent' style booth from small diameter PVC pipe and plastic sheeting on the walls and floor, with a furnace filter in one wall and a fan blowing out in the other end. The idea being that the fan will suck filtered air through the booth, providing me enough filtered ventilation so that I won't get asphyxiated from varnish fumes. Ideas? Critiques? I'm looking to get as dust-free as possible without killing myself in the process!
