This is the bench on the cover of the October 2010 issue of Wood magazine. It’s made of 100 year of mahogany, or better stated mahogany that was cut down 100 years ago, used, and recycled to my local wood store, commented on at http://lumberjocks.com/topics/20285.
My paint room at my home workshop:
Finishing: No stain. Clear sanding sealer, followed by 5 coats of Deft brushing lacquer, diluted with 25% thinner, sprayed with my new HVLP spray system. My HVLP consists of two $25 guns and my 10 year old pancake air compressor. Yes, that is the compressor holder from Wood magazine.
Something interesting I discovered with lacquer. One of the HVLP guns expects about 40psi. By mistake, the first coat of lacquer got sprayed at 80psi with no drips. At that pressure, lots of lacquer comes out of the gun every millisecond.
