Simple spindle spraying
When faced with spray-finishing a bunch of spindles, like those used for the bench on page 36, I find that it’s well worth the time to set up a simple rack for hanging the parts. It’s nothing more than a suspended 2 × 4 outfitted with cup hooks. I then install a screw eye into the end of each spindle to hang it from a cup hook. (No harm done since spindle ends are seldom exposed in a finished piece.) The setup allows me complete spraying access, and eliminates handling the pieces during the process.
