The short version (I hope).
Here I thought I could start finishing the kitchen cabinets today in
the lovely 65F weather we're having. But, no-oo.
Background: I have this lovely hvlp system raring to go and have now
decided it might be prudent to go with a water based product since...
The Deft lacquer I have is apparently ill suited to kitchen use (6
(SIX!) coats?!?!? May turn white w/exposure to moisture.).
I can't count on lovely weather the rest of the month and would really
find it distracting if I blew up my house from the fumes. Not to
mention it seems like it's a lot less hassle to use water based stuff.
(I've brushed Varathane poly w/success so the issue finding a good
product that is amenable to hvlp).
I do a little googling (including the wreck) and come up with
contradictory viewpoints on Varathane's water based poly. Some found
it hard to spray; others not so.
Hydrocote seems like a good choice. The Resithane product looks like
what I need. The local supplier has... - the Danish Oil - and nothing
else. So much for trying to get this done by the weekend.
So, unless I find that the Varathane product is sprayable, I'm gonna
have to mail order something.
Oh, quick is good too. If I could get 3 coats on in a day or less,
I'd be 'right happy. W/out sanding in between would make me
Suggestions, ideas, etc., please (PLEASE!).
(Gee, this is turning out to be a bigger adventure than I thought.
I've built kitchen cabs b4, but I guess I'm venturing into more new
territory than I realized with this hvlp stuff. It seems like jumping
right in isn't working).
