A few jobs that have been completed in the last couple of weeks.
Nicely done @Michael W. I enjoy looking at pictures of your work, propa craftsmanship right there
Thank you @jimmyc that's a very kind to you to say that. Its just practice and the desire to produce an outstanding product for my customers and provide good value for their money
Looking good !
Hi @Michael W Interesting.. the way you place door fronts on the papers...no fat edges on the underside?
Great work again Micheal, you’re workshop set up looks awesome. I have access to a booth similar size to yours but nowhere near as clean!
Very nice @Michael W I do wish I had your premises, haha, it would make life easier.
A cracking job once again, I bet the owners are chuffed to bits?
Lovely work as always. Nice set up. Inspiring and demoralising at the same time.
Hi @Tomcio no never any fat edges we spray them on a twirly spray table that has an mdf rectangle that sits on the frame, we just paper up the piece of mdf to lay the doors on for spraying so that the paper collects all the overspray then we just paper up over the top of the last layer and rack the doors up after they are sprayed
Thank you @grumpyvandriver @YTS 83' @Daf @cpb
Customer of the anthracite kitchen couldn't believe it when we had fitted it all back and called her to come and have a look, she actually shed a tear in delight and said she could never have expected it to come out so well and the fact she has saved a small fortune over buying a new kitchen.
Thank you all for your comments, I am very lucky to have been able to setup my workshop like that, we do try and keep it clean but it is at the point of needing a good once over
Amazing workmanship there @Michael W, again.
My wife just nosed over my shoulder as I was looking and said, and I quote, "makes your work look like chit" !
Very nice. What primer did you use for the anthracite grey kitchen?
@RonyT thank you, you are too kind. I am sure she didn't say that, mate all the work you show looks stunning, we are lucky to be a part of this forum full of nice, top quality tradesmen, who really take pride in their work and want to continually push themselves and grow. I'm proud to be a member with guys like yourself of something that far surpasses the quality of most I see.
@Michael O Connor thank you, the primer used was a dark grey solvent 2 pack PU from Renner, it has great adhesion, super quick dry times, sandabilitly is great, it is high build but not as good as a polyester which we use for grain fills and high gloss finishes, but for general purpose it is great and fairly cheap too.
A supporting loving wife there @RonyT You did point out to her you would need to buy all that equipment to satisfy her high standards.
Great work @Michael W What gun are you are using?
I guarantee 100% she did say that.
Anyway, got to go, need to get to A&E as she some how slipped on a banana skin that was on the stairs.
I was going to say just that when I heard the bumpidy bumpidy bump bump bump on the stairs.
Ha yeah it's inspired me to not bother as looks too much like hard work and beyond my skill set
Great work @Michael W
Thank you @crj
Thank you @ahenrypd we use Devilbiss gpi and flg5 in 1.8 for priming and Devilbiss gti prolite's in 1.3 setup for top coats and clear coats, on site we use Sata minijet 4400 or the A.N.I R160 both in 1.2 setup, mainly so we can reach all the nooks and crannies easy and can keep the overspray to a very very minimum.
Ohh dear and the hospital is more than 10 mins away
