Good old Rattle Can Lacquer
Make sure you have enough ventilation, if you spray too much of that stuff in a confined space, I hear you grow long blonde hair, and move to a burb of LA, and take up the guitar
One quick point, if it is at all cool or cold in your workshop, warm the can of lacquer up a bit, I use my heat gun on it's lowest setting, takes a few minutes, but the finish comes out of the can with much more vigor, and is atomized a lot better.
>> DON'T use a blow torch to warm up your can of spray finish <<
You can also do this with a pan of warm water, not HOT, or if you are a real smart thinking ahead kind of person, you can bring the can into the warmth of your home the night before.
OK, on to your question, I like to wait at least a couple of days, but if I can put it off for a week, that is even better, especially if I'm power buffing the work.
Oh........... what........... no pictures
