I have sprayed about 50+ boxes with Deft can lacquer and have only had a problem with the first one and that was because it was the first one and i was not familiar with using it. Most of my boxes are sanded up to 320 grit by hand. I find that the lacquer works best when very light passes are used and the can is held about 12” from what I am spraying.I dont always find it necessary to sand after each coat…usually after each second coat works for me. I buff it after the last coat. It is usually about 70 deegrees in my shop.
I find it to be a very easy finish to use once you get the technique. Don’t get frustrated…just practice on some scrap pieces of wood that you sand the same as your work.

-- Each step of every Wood Art project I design and build is considered my masterpieceā€¦ because I want the finished product to reflect the quality and creativeness of my work
