Just trying out some finishes on my turnings. On a piece or two I just sprayed rattle can lacquer and was unimpressed with the finish, it seemed like it did not bring out the grain to the fullest. Also I have been turning some natural edge with a lot of voids within the bowls (manzanita root burls) and it seems it is hard to get in the crevices without overspraying and getting a run.
Next question... is spraying lacquer over oils a problem? I found that using the oils first gets good coverage in the cracks and crevices, as well as bringing out the grain. Then it seems like they need more coats of lacquer
