I recently remodeled a home.
I contracted the cabinet work because my shop is in storage and I had to deal with severe time crunch.
The kitchen island cabinet is made of Cherry. The “Eat at” top is a glue up, 1-3/4” thick by 18” wide.
The cabinet maker finished all this with spray on lacquer.
Then he tells me we cant sit wet stuff on it. Need to use coasters for glasses.
WTF. If lacquer won’t take water exposure why use it to finish a bar?
Anyway, anyone have a suggestion for what finish I can put on this cherry bar top?
Will the new finish work on top of the lacquer? Or will I have to strip the lacquer first?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
