Planes, Trains and Automobiles in the Month of May!

On the road again…

In the first half of May, Todd and Scott will take to the streets – and the air – to launch the P2F brand of paint industry education from the furthest region in the Northeast to the heart of the Wild West – all in the interest of hands on training with vocational students.

The tour will kick off May 6 with the trainers rolling out to Sanford, Maine on one of their legendary road trips to work with two groups of vocational students on everything from fine finish HVLP to air assisted drywall spray and backroll – all in one day.

Then, the following week, P2F will mobilize all the way across the country to Billings, Montana to work with five groups of students who are learning at all different levels about furniture building and finishing. This will be a good old fashioned brushed finishing workshop.

It’s almost a P2F Unplugged, but of course there will be some power tools in the clinics!

And, Rumor has it that the Montana Woodturners Association will also be in the crowd for this one.

In between trips, the guys are planning a strategic 802paint strike on an ipe deck or two. Always time for local wood snobbery.

This journey has been months in the making and will allow P2F to work with literally dozens of talented students who are preparing to enter the building trades workforce. This is only possible through the logistical support and enthusiasm of P2F Full Program Sponsors: Festool, Graco, Sherwin Williams and 3M.

Much respect to all of these folks for believing in paint industry education.
