Lacquer can have any look you want, from a hand rubbed look to a satin finish or high gloss as well. I used to feel the same way about lacquer because semi-gloss lacquer can look pretty glossy after 3 sprayed coats.

With modern HVLP conversion guns, two coats gives plenty of coverage. I have switched to Rudd Dura-Cat lacquer in a satin finish, and it gives my white oak projects a hand rubbed look.

I say don’t give up on lacquer, especially if you plan to spray the finish.
