Not different mfrs, but different types from the same mfr, but not one on top of the other – don’t know if that meets your strict criteria or not , but…............

I’ve used Target EM6000 lacquer on the bottom part of a project, and Target EM8000 poly on the top, such as a table, dresser, nightstand etc. No chance for interaction of the different finishes. If you follow Art’s advice and call Jeff, he can give you all the specific technical reasons not to do what you are asking about. If you insist, use the lacquer on bottom, let it dry and set up at least a couple of weeks so that the poly on top doesn’t restrict it or react with it, sand it with ~220, then put the poly on top and hope for the best.

As requested, I am looking for feedback from those that have experimented with different topcoats applied. Experimentation sometimes leads to incredible results, sometimes not. Need to hear from those that have experimented.

And sometimes there’s just no reason to do the experiment.
