Destroyer Project (3): Paint booth

This project used toxic lacquer paints with noxious fumes so it had to be done outdoors. A painting booth protected the guitar from dust and debris while the paint was drying.

I built a paint booth that resembled a telephone booth. It's basically an open box covered in plastic. The ends were salvaged from an old coffee table. Some wood scraps and plastic sheeting from Home Depot completed the necessary supplies.

I put in a hook in a cross member in the top of the booth. There was another hook in the little neck stick in the guitar. This way the guitar could hang in the booth between the paint layers.
