Jim discussed the steps he recommends for the finish spraying process to a large group of AZ Woodworkers members and guests.
He discussed in detail the eight step process for spraying and indicated where glazing could be done.
Tom Demonstrates & Explains
Tom explained the process he perfected over years of furniture finish repair. He uses a burn-in knife in one of the early steps in that process.
Level is Step 1.
At this stage in the process Tom has filled the dent in the bowl by first checking that no fibers are showing and ensuring that the filler is level with the bowl surface.
Jim's Drawer Repair
Jim then showed how a damaged drawer can be repaired with Mohawk products.
Drawer Repair Process
Here he is using a special tool to heat the Mohawk filler. The tool uses batteries to heat the tip. He then uses a scraper and sandpaper to blend the filler into the Drawer.
Patch Is Complete
Here you can see the patch that has been applied. He then went on to blend the patch to the rest of the drawer wood surface.
These are the steps Jim followed in the drawer repair process. Several of the workshop attendees stayed after the presentation to ask both Jim and Tom questions. It was a good demonstration of finish spraying and furniture repair techniques.
