Jatoba Kitchen Countertops - 12 replies

I want to make a kitchen countertop using Jatoba. The boards are 5” wide and almost 1/4” thick. I would like to glue it to MDF. Do you think this will work? Does anyone know of a better way to do this? I’m concerned about the wood swelling and contracting. It makes a beautiful countertop. I hope I can make it work.

Sprayed Paint Doesn't Stick to Edge - 8 replies

Paint doesn’t stick to the corners/edges on my sprayed cabinet doors – also missing in some of the deeper grain (oak, factory finished, now I’m spraying them with paint). They look GREAT except for the missing paint on the corners (wherever there’s an outside corner on the door frame, including next to the center panel). ...

WooWhooooo ~ Success!!! - 0 replies

I was having trouble with getting a fine spray out of my spray gun, so posted a question about it yesterday. Thanks to many people’s help, I was able to get a much better output and actually got 2 coats on the back of the cabinet doors. Earlextech, I did the high air/low fluid combination, and I could immediately see the droplets were m...

Which gun to use with Titan Capspray 105 - 16 replies

I have a Capspray 105 turbine HVLP with a Maxum II gun, and I’m getting back into spraying. The turbine seems to have a lot of power and I’m very pleased with it, but have never been impressed with the gun. I’ve tried many different combinations of finish, Floetrol, gun settings, etc., and it always seems like the gun sprays ou...

HVLP Finishing Question - 7 replies

Thanks to all for the great input on orange peel with waterborne poly with HVLP. I realized my room temp (garage) was too low, and also heated the finish a little, and could see a huge difference. Still got some orange peel, so have a couple more questions. I used a viscosity cup and got a time of 20 seconds. Does this sound right for waterbo...

Orange Peel with HVLP Sprayer - 14 replies

I bought a used Titan Capspray 105. It had little use and I got a really good buy on it. I cleaned it really, really well and installed a new check valve and can seal. I’m new to spraying, but have read a lot about it. On my first try with waterborne polyurethane I’m getting orange peel. I’m using a #3 projector set. I’ve...

Just tried zero VOC primer - 3 replies

I have a job that has no ventilation and requires a lot of priming. I’ve used Zinsser Bullseye 123 almost exclusively for years. It is a very good primer. On this job I wanted zero VOCs if possible, so asked at the big box and they sold me Kilz Clean Start. I expected it to be junk (because it’s zero VOCs), but was actually quite ...

New to Spraying, Need an Opinion - 10 replies

I’m getting ready to buy a turbine HVLP, have only sprayed one time in my life, so I’m trying to pick a good one. I’m trying to get the best one I can for my budget. I’m looking at the Earlex 6900 and the Campbell Hausfeld HV3000 (both 3-stage, I believe). I’ve read lots of reviews but still am not sure either one i...
