Hang it High for Finishing

Finish flat workpieces like frames, plywood panels or doors, by hanging them from pieces of light chain hooked to screws stuck in a board along the ceiling.

Dave Munkittrick is a furniture builder who’s my go-to guy whenever I need finishing advice. When he finishes flat workpieces like frames, plywood panels or doors, he hangs them from pieces of light chain hooked to screws stuck in a board along the ceiling. He drives screw hooks into the project where the holes won’t be noticed. That way he can finish both sides at the same time, and no dust settles on the vertical surfaces during drying. — Travis Larson
