Go to Lowes and get you some Deft Lacquer. Says brushing lacquer on the can because of VOC regulators.
It can be brushed or sprayed. Deft is some of the finest lacquer on the market.
Dries fast. When we use it we can usually get three or four coats a day. Sand with fine paper between coats for a more deep looking finish.

Dust the first coat on to raise the grain and let it dry…sand and then keep going. We thin about 10%.

As a matter of fact, we’re getting ready to use the Deft Semi Gloss on a large set of Cherry kitchen cabinets and will put 5 coats lightly sanding between coats. Will be completed in less than 2 days.

We’ve sprayed loads of Deft on Cypress. Deft is very user friendly.
