I have made a new table for my caravan. It is made of to plates of 4mm veneer with 13mm wood skeleton inside. All glued together.
As for giving it a surface, I am in the process of lacquering - today I have 3 times in 3 hours given it a thing layer of lacquer mixed 50/50 with "white spirit" (alcohol/ethanol/what is it in English?) - and the reason for adding it is that it sucks it all in.
Now, for tables, what would be the next step - waiting and adding more tomorrow?
Going straight for the pure lacquer?
As of the now the bottom side have got 2 layers and the top side 3.
Straight lacquer, 1 hour between coats or as soon as dry. Dewaxed
shellac (i.e Sealcoat) makes an excellent, fast-building filler-
Lay the coats on fast and don't worry about skips. The next coat
will make them disappear. Trying to touch them up before the
lacquer is dry creates ridges.
If you're brushing on the lacquer, don't bother cleaning the
brush beyond brushing it onto a piece of cardboard. Fresh
lacquer will dissolve the old and get the brush back into
