Hmm. re-reading your post and the comment above. Sounds like you want to apply the lacquer with wet sandpaper? Not going to work. You would need to use an oil finish like the danish oil you mentioned. Or BLO or tung will work too. If you want to wet sand after the finish cures, then the lacquer will work fine and won’t take that long to apply all the coats necessary to rub it out.

How big is this box? Could you use the danish oil and “dip” the ends in it? That might work.
