I do not have a garage, so I would like to build a spray booth in my basement large enough to accommodate pieces of furniture that I build. Does anyone have experience building a basement spray booth and do you know of construction plans? Also, can you recommend a source for the explosion proof fan I will need?—Gregg Pollack

Bob LaCivita replies: I encourage you to forget the idea of putting a spray booth in your basement. Spray finishing is very hazardous when using solvent based finishes. The hazards are fire, explosions, overspray everywhere and the residence of your house are put at health risks. I would rethink this idea.
