I use lacquer exclusively. I love the way it looks. I love how easy it is to use. I LOVE THE SMELL. I sometimes cut it a bit no more than 20% depends on the weather. I NEVER spray when it rains. I spray with a cheap little gun called a Critter. It holds a pint in a mason jar. Many light coats are the key. Here in warm California I can get six coats in a day. I hit the project with some 300-400 wet dry just before the last coat. The last coat gets some 600-1000 grit love after a full day curing. Then some Johnson paste wax. I used to use Deft satin but have switched to gloss as it seems to lay out better. I can bring it back to gloss or any thing below that with sanding.
