I've stripped and sanded and oiled and varnished and sanded and varnished and sanded and now............
I'm trying to get a perfect finish for the top of the table only. Can I sand with 300 or 400 grit and use something on top to get the semigloss back?
This is an everyday eating table (for 2) and I want to feel the smoothness like a babies tush.
I put the info on my products so you would know if I screwed up or not. I bought this table unfinished 27 years ago, and it had a finish put on by an amature, immature 30 year old me. So I decided it needed a face lift.
I realize that I am dealing with laquer instead of polyurethane. I didn't want a waterbased product and the guy at the store directed me to the boat clear coat and the cheaper clearcoat. Anyways, I'm going to finish the project with this stuff because I've spent enuf for now. Anyone try a quick hit with a rub of thinner after sanding?
Seems like a rubdown of mineral spirits shines it up some, even after drying off. Maybe that is good enuf for now. I read up on the spraying of lacquer being the way to go, but no can do.
