DIY spraybooth.

Alrighty Guys. I am starting a new project, and wouldn't mind input/criticism/comments during this process.

This is going to be a WIP and progress of me building my own spraybooth.

Here are some of the plans for the spraybooth:
*Sorry for the crinkles, I took it with me when I went to go check out the PSC blower at a Grainger Warehouse.*
Big image warning.


I will be using 9/16 in. Plywood from my backyard. The inside dimensions will be a 12in High, 15in wide, 12in depth.
As you can see, I've went with a pseudo-jigsaw puzzle approach when fitting the boards. I thought that this would be a good way to keep the boards steady when I actually put in the screws to keep it together.

Here is a few pictures of a mock-up I made from a cardboard box.
although not exactly to scale, it gives me a way better understanding of how big it would be in my room.
*sorry about the glare.*
Added MG Gyan for scale.





Ok now on to the mathematics of the project.
I followed this guide here at Brian's car models.
Now my booth is a cross-draft booth and he recommends 100 FPM for the booth.
Following this formula:
Cross-draft CFM = inside height x inside width x desired face velocity (depth is not a consideration)
1x1.25x100= 125 So I would need a fan that would blow 125 CFM
*The reason why its 1x1.25 is because I changed the inches into feet.*

So now I have been looking at fans and have chosen the one that I believe that will best fit my needs, and that fan would be the 1TDP7 PSC Blower from Grainger.

That's all for this post, stay tuned and I'll hopefully get this done by the new year.
