How to Correctly Apply a Lacquer Finish on a Wood Surface?

Lacquer has been the crowning wood finish for centuries, thanks to its durability, resistance, and clear finishing results.
If you want to coat your woodwork with a high-quality finish like Mohawk lacquer, you can choose to do so with a brush or spray. Keep in mind that sprayed lacquer dries faster than brushed lacquer and using both methods on one project can end in an inconsistent finish. Although the brushed lacquer also dries fast, you will need a bit more time before you can apply another coat and even out the finish.
If you choose to apply the finish with a brush, be sure you work quickly and make a thin coat so you can always apply more coats as needed to help you even things out. Spraying, on the other hand, is more expensive, but it can do the job faster and even better if you’re working on smaller projects. When spraying lacquer on a project, you can choose between an aerosol can and a pneumatic (airless) sprayer, just make sure that you’re working in a well-ventilated area as the solvents are known to be flammable and have a very strong odor.
Lacquer finishes are one of the easiest wood refinishing products to use because they’re more forgiving than other finishes, especially when you’re brushing them on. They are also easier to repair and maintain in case the surface gets damaged.
