Created a "paint booth" inside since it is raining and exterior humidity is very high.
As long as you keep the work-piece at or deeper than half-way, all the paint products stay INSIDE the "booth", and only a little of the VOC smell escapes.
XYL is working on some advanced water slide techniques to label ownership and put a message inside the lid on each box. (Inkjet printing, sealing and clear and white backgrounds to images.
Humidity inside hovering around 36% and 70 degrees... pretty much perfect. Just need to add the shop vac to the back center to draw near 100% the fumes out into the garage/outside.
Boxes have been pre-stained and stained. Waiting the minimum 4 hours before adding 3 coats of clear acrylic, water slides, and finally 3 more coats of clear. Insides get 3 coats clear, black chalk paint, 3 coats clear, reversed water slide with white background, 3 coats of clear.
Then, 1/8" felt pads w/ PSA lining exterior bottom and interior bottom. Replace the hinges and let cure for a 4-7 days.
