What do you use in your HVLP guns? - 6 replies

I am looking to buy a few cans of lacquer / stain or whatever to finish a few projects. I am not really sure what I can use with my HVLP gun but I really want to get it started this weekend.

What kind of wood is this? - 3 replies

My Uncle got this at an estate sale, it’s 2×2 and I’d say I have around 20 ft of it. He only paid a few dollars for it, I have it side by side and the darker is one I wiped with some mineral spirits to clean it up.

Help with what to buy?! - 23 replies

Hello all, I am brand new to the woodworking industry. I have been buying more and more equipment throughout the last few months. I love it and it’s become a HUGE passion of mine. Unfortunately the space I have for it is in the garage and it is very very poorly insulated with no heat. Being February in Chicago the temps have been extre...
