Thank you for all the replies and tips so far. I bought the Behlen Lacquer from Woodcraft. The website says it’s a nitrocellulose base. I have a book about finishing but right now I’m living with my in-laws and have no idea where that book is now. I’m using a HVLP cup gun on an air compressor. It’s made by Husky that I got from Home Depot. I did some spraying years ago in a custom cabinet shop, but I didn’t have to set the gun up. I’ll have to take some time to set up the gun and spray on a couple of test pieces to get the fan pattern correct.

Are there any definitely do nots that the a beginner should be aware of?
