You may suggest that I post on the turning site, but I think, maybe, that workers on this site may spray more. I went to the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington, DC, the other day and came back with an interesting observation ( for me anyway). Two well-know turners there finished their work differently: one used what amounts to a French polish with multiple applications of shellac and a little oil, the other used spray lacquer with multiple rub outs. Both finishes were excellent. But, without question, the spray approach was superior -- just striking! Now keep in mind that on a lathe you can let the spinning lathe to do just about all the work. (So French polish is not a chore.) Can you suggest why the spray lacquer was noticeably superior? In my own work I use the French polish approach, and it's not bad. But I'm still thinking about how beautiful the spray lacquer looked.
