How to build a Workshop Finishing Stand

Putting a new spin on finishing your projects. Painting a door is one of those projects that always seems to take twice as long as it should. That is because after painting one side of the door, you have to let the paint dry before you can turn the door over to paint the other side. To get around this problem ShopNotes Editor, Phil Huber, came up with a simple solution. He built a couple of support stands that hold the door without touching it, allowing you to paint both sides at one time.
