Working on a 2nd and 3rd build, was wondering if hanging them in my (non-temp controlled) shed as they dry/cure during the different stages would be a problem. I live in a warm/dry climate at around 5,000 feet, so humidity is not a concern, but during the day it can get in the 90s and really hot in the shed. Should I bring them inside?

I would think there might be a problem. A warm environment is good for curing, but if outside air temp is in the 90's the temp in the shed is more like 115-120. My concern with that is the the top surface will skin over and not allow the solvents to flash off. That is one reason for using lacquer retarder in high heat conditions. That could cause a condition called heat bubbling, where the solvent kinda explodes under the skin over due to the extreme heat, causing a rough surface. Much like a volcano.

Me, I would store in a closet in the house after the smell has dissipated somewhat and not stink up the house. Don't want Moma mad 😡

Thanks Lon! Yikes, don't want any craters on these things. What'll probably end up happening is I'll spray them at night (in the 60s), let them hang and dry till morning, then move inside.

Yeah, I was using under the basement stairs to hang, but now the winter coats are there. I wonder if I can pawn the smell off as mothballs. Shocked
