What to practice spraying on
With some new spray equipment in hand, I'm ready to have another go at spraying lacquer. My goal of course is to practice building several coats, leveling and polishing to gloss. The question is: What should I be practicing spraying on?
Since what I'll ultimately be spraying is most likely mahogany, I could practice on that, but it can get expensive to have multiple pieces to test on. The alternative is to use the same board and remove the finish after test spraying, but removing finish is a pain.
I was thinking about luan plywood. It's cheap and similar to mahogany except that luan's grain is so open.
