Q & A:
Evan Dunville : Can i buy a cheap-o spray gun and use my small compressor to spray finishes? what is the easiest to spray finish (best to start with) ?
Matt : My question would be how much does one actually need to account for fluctuations in wood size due to changes in humidity and whatnot to prevent cracking. What steps need to be taken to prevent damage?
