I recommend lacquer. I have tried most brands, and am using Rudd Duracat 550 VOC now. It’s a non-yellowing lacquer so it looks great on light or dark colored projects.

You want to have adequate ventilation, and no open flame when you spray. Lacquer won’t effect shop equipment, because any fine mist dries by the time it hits the floor.

I would only spray poly as a last resort. Some formulations dry too slowly for my liking.

Good luck with your decision.
