Topic tags/keywords: question cherry

ok so i have a piece i threw 3 coats of laquer on and then wetsanded it with 600 grit, it wasnt perfect but it was really good but its been a long time since i was in auto body and smoking dope didnt help either , so now i dont recall how to get it glazed and such
i had some maquires new car glaze i think it was called but it was fairly gritty, not the glaze i recall, im assuming its maybe more of a polish then the glaze i knew and also its probly something from my dads garage making it atleast 20+ years old..lol
so any tiips would be ideal and thanx in advance, p.s. been off dope for many years now so i can learn again..lol
o and i guess i should mention its brushed on and oil based, i dont recall the brand off hand but can grab it if need be ;)

I had fun visiting with you.

Sometimes it is just easier to share the information in a conversation than typing it out. I had too many questions myself for you in order to be clear about the project and problem.

Good luck with the project!

I made the hollow core doors and veneered them with bamboo and maple pommelle. Then they are dyed and lacquered.

The full series of progress photos can be seen here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/toddclippinger/sets/72157613717705970/

It was an amazing journey to build this and there is a lot of information to be had by looking at the photos.
