One of the skills at TechShop that I knew I wanted to learn was powder coating. Surprisingly, this was of the easiest pieces of equipment to pick up and produce some great finishes. I wanted to add a bit of contrast to the ash desktop, and ultimately landed on this "Ford Light Blue - RAL 5012." Just like most finishing/painting projects, the devils are in the details - and that means prep work. Luckily for me, a quick wipe down with TSP and fashioning some hooks to run through the mounting tabs and onto the cart was all I needed.
