When I want a gloss showroom finish on a turning, I spray it then finish sand/polish on the lathe. You want all small defects filled, but I dont fill larger defects – just depends on the piece. Lacquer, precat lacquer, shellac, and wb finishes all work well depends on the use of the turning and the finisher’s preference. I like to use wb topcoats with shellac under to provide chatoyance. If the piece will have unfilled voids or defects I use a satin sheen then polish to a gloss. The unpolished surfaces then dont have that glossy sheen.
