Maybe to late ask this but…..Can I apply lacquer over a BLO and beeswax finish. Reason I ask is that I built a letter tray holder from walnut with maple inlay. Once done I sealed it with a home brewed mixture of BLO and Beeswax hoping that this would be enough.

Any thoughts would be helpful.

That should be enough but lacquer will not lay over wax. Go for shellac if you want to add another finish it will lay over wax.

I have the spray shellac so this won’t affect the piece. Like probably every other woodworker finishing is not my strong point yet its all a learning experience.

I have used blo than applied sanding sealer over it then lacquer over the sealer. I have never used the bees wax combo though. The blo is on a cedar chest that was finished in the mid 1960’s and it still looks good.

Have your say...
