Laquer

I have a very small shop with no ventilation. So I知 pretty limited on what finishes I can use. I find there is a water based laquer. Does it have a strong odor? Opinions, please...

The odor isn't bad with a water based lacquer unless you count your own sweat. It's takes a lot more elbow grease than it's solvent based counterpart. Where the solvent lacquer might take one coat of sealer and two coats of lacquer you might have to use a dozen coats of water based lacquer sanding between every single coat to achieve the same look.

You still don't want to breathe the mist and vapors from water borne lacquer. Wear a good respirator when spraying anything, well, except spraying water on your yard maybe...

Right now we have about 2 feet of snow on the ground. Spraying outside, unfortunateli is not an option.

Thanks...

As long as it wasn't snowing at the time you could spray a solvent based lacquer outdoors in the snow. Excessive cold will make it take longer to dry however it will dry faster in the cold than fast dry polyurethane in the hot summer.
