Mini Paint Booth

When you have to paint small parts, do you get tired of hanging parts from a coat hanger, or maybe laying them out on an old piece of plywood on top of a garbage can ? Me too. This is what I did.

First, I took an old piece of 2' x 4' x 1/8" hardboard, cut it in half, and screwed it to the corner on the wall of my small basement work shop.

Second, I cut a scrap of 1" x 2" mahogany and screwed that to the wall at the bottom of the hardboard. This is the shelf support.

Finally, I cut a piece of 1/2" melamine covered hardboard and screwed that down to the shelf support

The floor space was already taken up by a garbage can, so I didn't loose any room.

I picked up this lazy susan bearing in the hardware section of Home Depot for about $9 Cdn. Once it was centered on the shelf, I screwed it down.
I also got this plywood disk from Home Depot. It was about $4 Cdn. It was attached to the lazy susan bearing next.
Now, I can put my small parts down and spin & spray. Not sure about ventilation. Maybe next week. Of course, if I keep sniffing the fumes, I may not care.
