In Response To tray *PIC* (Ray Mtn. Home Ar.)

One thought that hits me, and I may be wrong as rarely if ever use lacquer, is that lacquer is hard and essentially somewhat brittle for the way you intend to use it.

How about oil? I recall reading several articles in Woodturning where the turner used oil in cases of troublesome wood. I think Mark Baker mentions using it in one of his books as does John Hunnex (pretty sure I got that name right) in one of his books. I believe more used for tear out than chipping per se, but think it may help.

Or just spray with distilled water (to avoid any mineral stains) to soften the fibers.

Once you get a clean cut and it dries, you can apply the finish to firm up the details.

Not talking with any authority here, but I think this may work for you.
