How shiny is shiny? Want the best high gloss piano finish? Go with polyester! I love this stuff! Sherwin Williams recently started importing Sayerlack from Italy. Sprays on super thick with re-coats every 15 min and best part is no sanding in between. Sanding at the end is where it’s all at. I work my way up from 320 grit, then wet sand with 500,1000,1200,2000 then compound and buff. Last I hit it with carnuba wax! I love this stuff and keep getting better at it.

    Too much goddamn reflection to enjoy the beautiful wood underneath. Now it will be condemned to spend the rest of its life in a tacky Mexican restaurant.

    Whats the best way to restore a gloss finish table top. I can't sand too deep b/c it will damage the design under neath the finish. I have some 800 grid orbital sand paper that I have been playing with on the sander (only for a few minutes) but there are some deeper scratches… I saw one guy did a video where he taped around the scratches and build it back up with lacquer (using artiste paint brush). I just don't want to start experimenting and mess it up…

    great finish! do you use the festool platin series for sanding? does that require wet sanding? I have been using kovax from japan which is dry sanding all the way. What compound and buffing brand are you using? Would love to try this carnuba wax you mentioned. Where can I buy it from?

    "True Wood Design" – you can hardly see the wood grain because of this ultra reflecting finish… not exactly my taste but ok…

    Nice but you might not like to use this table. Always too worrisome to damage it. Whether you made it yourself or paid much for it.

    hello good Sir, I have a project, a piano lid I have to strip, and then recoat in polyesther… Can you give me some advice ? Can I do a nitrocellulose primer on there ? maybe with the black half transparent colour in it… and then coat it with polyesther ? Do you spray the two components with two guns ? how many coats do you spray on ? what's the total cure time before you start sanding ? thank you

    That's the finish I was looking for yesterday but today I noticed a long piece of the brush hair buried under two coats of polyurethane clear coat. I don't think I'll mind in a few days. Never use Harbor Freight brushes for this application.

    this is beautiful. I suppose this is epoxy resin? I have an idea for a project. I would like to refurbish my dressing table and give it the same finish that you have done here. I Would like that finish ALL over ( top, front and sides) but all I can find are videos on how to do it just on the top. would you have an advice for me???
