I’ve made several clocks and have used several coats of lacquer to seal the faces. I usually use end grain pieces so the wood really soaks the lacquer up. A problem I’m having is that the final coat ends up uneven despite sanding between coats or not sanding at all. I’ve used foam and bristle brushes.
I’ve been told I could air brush the lacquer on so that it has a perfect even finish. I’m willing to spend some cash but can’t afford to buy something and then not use it.
?? So the first question, is this even possible to do with an air gun / brush, and second are there any good recommendations for kits, or guns??
I’ve got a 15 gal compressor that will generate 5.4 SCFM at 90 PSI.
Thanks in advance.
