Build A Portable Spray Paint Booth For Your Workshop

If you do a lot of spray painting, this clever box design keeps over-spray from ruining your stuff, helps you avoid nasty paint fumes and is as easy to carry around as a briefcase.

In this video from youtuber DIY Tyler, you’ll learn how to build the useful spray painting tool yourself. You’ll need some plywood, wood glue and some basic hardware you can get at any big box store. You’ll also need a box fan, and a 20x20x1 air filter like you’d usually use for a house. Once it’s all put together, you can pop open the box, place your object in the centre, turn on the fan and paint without worrying about over-spray and nasty fumes. You can find the complete instructions for the project at the link below.
