I just sanded the 2nd finish off a test piece using General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. I like the look of oil base. Dust is settling in the finish. I am trying to finish the 2nd of a twin bed set, the 1st bed has a few dust specks to the feel, but it will have to do. I am wiping the finish on. Over the years I have always use oil base, never had trouble like this.
Trying to do better I constructed a booth out of plastic sheeting and 1x3 and a fan that draws air thru a coarse and fine furnace filter an attempt to move clean air into the booth and dust out, not doing any better The question is should I forget the fan in the booth? Does any body have a solution for this problem? The next project will be water base.
