Update to my project: It is going VERY slowly as I have very limited free time, but so far I have stripped, sanded and stained the table and bench and started finishing them w/ GF Enduro-Var. It dries fairly smooth, however I want to avoid brush marks in the final coat and this stuff dries very quickly in my environment (recently 90+ degree days in dry Colorado climate). I was toying w/ the idea of thinning it, but in the interest of avoiding runs haven't done this yet. The short dry time also makes it challenging to keep a wet edge on something as large as a table top.
I'm using Satin Enduro-var, so glossy isn't the end goal- just no brush marks. Is sanding between coats the best way to achieve this, possibly w/ a very fine sand and/or polish after the top coat has completely cured? Or do I need to reconsider getting a spray gun to finish the job? After having the project in my garage as long as it has been, I'll do what I have to in order to get it right.
...You don't have to get a high dollar paint sprayer for wood finishes. I use a harbor freight #97855 sprayer.
My home air compressor is a relatively small setup, thus based on the stats I'm reading about the HarborFreight #97855, it appears that I don't have enough CFM to use this gun. See my air compressor here https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-4-...041H/206492568
. Would this gun still work at a lower pressure, or should I be looking at alternate methods?
Thanks again everybody for your help! I've been reading up and learning a lot, but all of this information can be a bit overwhelming to someone with little to no baseline knowledge.
