I’m going to try my hand on a few small boxes (working my way up to a humidor if all goes well) in a simple garage workshop (no finishing room or sprayers). I’ve got some Jatoba for the sides and some nicely figured maple for the sliding top. I would like to end up with a smooth, high gloss, deep finish. I’ve got nothing in my cupboards so will be starting from scratch. All my finishing over the past year has been done on the lathe – love that rock hard, deep gloss from CA.
I don’t mind a little elbow grease but won’t have days/weeks to spend waiting for finishes to cure between steps.
So… bottom line is:
I’m looking for achievable results as I build my skill set.
Brand names and sources would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all for your patience and tutelage!
Side note (possible fodder for another thread): Is there a method to get a CA finish on large flat pieces?
