Drying cabinet doors
« on: September 25, 2017, 03:05 PM »
Hi Foggers,
After spraying one side of a doors/panel and a letting it dry for several days, I then flip it over to do the other side and lay it back down on the drying rack. I found that after a fews of drying, the side touching the rack, which has had several days to dry, gets a mark from the rack. I've waited as long as a week before flipping a door to paint the front side. Would anyone have any suggestions.

Thanks,
JC

For cabinet doors you will have some attachment point for hinges, use these to attach hangers and dry them floating.
Panels will most likely have areas that will be hidden at the end, a domino here and there to rest it on?

Try this process. Even if you spray them flat, you could easily pick it up on the hanger and hang it to dry.

How about these :

Chris's hook idea might be fine for garage sale finds like in his opening shot , or millwork done on site.   But I wouldn't find a couple of holes in the edge of a cabinet door that came from a factory setting acceptable at all.

Your clients may feel differently. Though.

JC , are the marks being left by something on the rack's arms.  Or is the paint still soft/un cured and getting dented or stuck to the arms ?

Try some painting triangles setup on a few stands/sawhorses. Sometimes I find the larger heaver doors will have marks from my rack
It does create a space problem but helps out on the larger doors

Sounds more like an issue with your finish than your drying rack.  What are you using for a finish?

I agree it is a finish issue. I would look for a product that drys quicker. If the finish is still that soft after a week that could be a problem long term also.

It is the bottom of the door/drawer. Never will see it. It it is an upper cabinet door, screw hole go on top. Nobody will see 9+ feet in the air.

It leaves a lot less to be seen than paint and flip methods.

Cheers. Bryan.

For my projects I screw in an eyelet at each hinge location and hang from that. Spray both sides, hang to dry. Gets covered by the hinge. drawer faces get eyelets on the side that will be covered by the box after mounting. Spray, dry, mount, enjoy.
