So long as I’m asking about finishes…. any opinions on which is the better spray finish? Both cans say it gives a hard durable finish and I tried both in a side-by-side test on apiece of maple. Put down 2 coats of each. The lacquer finish looks “shinier” than the poly but the poly looks thicker.
More to my ultimate curiosity is I’m building a bathroom vanity cabinet. The base is all 4/4 maple, and the top is 5/4 oak. So I’m wondering which will do better in a sometimes “steamy” environment? The whole thing currently has 2 coats of Danish Oil and I’m thinking that a spray finish as a top coat will get into all the little spaces in and around all the boards, thus doing a more thorough job of sealing out any moisture down the road.
So what say you LumberJocks? Lacquer? or Poly? Is either a better choice for a bathroom vanity?
