Finishing question
« on: March 24, 2017, 12:26 PM »
Hi Guys,
I am building a entry bench for the house out of Walnut and another wood TBD for some panels and am wondering what to use to finish it.  I recently bought a Fuji MM5 and would like to use it for this job.  What do you use to finish your projects with?  I normally apply a lacquer or poly by hand but wanted to try my new sprayer out. 

Any tips?

Thanks,
Trevin

It will be an interior bench. Been looking into Target coatings em6000. Have you used this?

I have not used any Target coatings.

Honestly I'd go with Surfix oil on Walnut. Much nicer look than a clear finish, gives the wood "life".

The stool is Surfix finished.

The top on this bar is oiled (Waterlox), the verticals are finished with clear KA+.

The oils were hand applied. The KA+ was sprayed.
