    This once again shows why you are the best!

    Did you spray or rub on your finish?

    You're ratcheting the standard up another several notches, Travis. That's an absolutely gorgeous piece.

    Pete, that's Deft lacquer from a spray can. Several coats then wet sanded after it cured.

    That is stunning to say the least!

    You say you wet sand after it cures...?

    How long do you wait until it cures, in general?

    If you are wet sanding, do you worry about getting any water in the inside of the form?

    Thanks for taking the time to share, inspiring

    Stu, 2-3 days in general. I just dip the sandpaper in a bowl of water and shake off the excess, just enough to keep the paper wet. I hold the piece on a towel in my lap, so there's not much worry of water getting in places it shouldn't.
