I have built a F4 Octave Mandolin for someone and I am down to the finish on it. #PS: Looks real good!
Anyway the customer wants a semi gloss finish, he said "QUOTE" I want the wood to look shiny, not to look like glass on top of wood."
QUESTION: When using a semi gloss lacquer,do you put it on, level it and buff it out the same way I would using a high gloss lacquer? #Just wondering if buffing it hard will turn it from semi glos to high gloss??
Any tips here would be appreciated, Thanks Yonkle
PS: Finish photos of the new Octave will be posted soon, she's a beauty! Jd
