purple heart mirror *PIC*

>I turned another batch of mirrors. This is the nicest of the bunch. It is purple heart with a yellow heart and purple heart inlayed ring. I sprayed this one with too much lacquer. Not enough to fill in the pores but enough to be really glossy and kind of plastic looking. I will knock it back down with 4/0 steel wool tonight and then hit it lightly wax. I think it would be Ok as either satin or filled to the point of being glass smooth but not inbetween.
