I have found if I let lacquer dry for several days or at least a week it will buff nicer but you definitely must use a light touch. I agree with Mark that Antique Oil or Danish Oil will buff nicely. With lacquer I found after it has dried for a week or so that if I just buff with white diamond and then wax. That seems to work the best for me. I have talked with Cindy Drozda and Bonnie Klien about waxes they use when watching there video's. It works pretty good when buffed lightly but they use neutral shoe polish. Cindy told me in a e-mail that it is just a combination of waxes especially carnuba wax. So have been trying that on smaller projects. Seems to work pretty slick. Cindy uses it on all here finials.
