Thanks for the help/suggestions. Yes get finishing products can be a hassle for us small use guys in Alaska. In the past I have ordered and use both General finishes, Target coating, Fuhr International and something called Wood Pride by ICS Paints. All of them have been OK. For this small 3 cabinet job I don’t want to order it and pay the outrageous shipping chargers to Alaska.

Unfortunately my shop is not setup to spray solvent base lacquers safely. It would solve some problems if it were. At this stage of the game that’s not going to happen.

I have bought General Finishes at Anchorage Remade before. I call them twice today only get a recording to leave a message, and they would call me back, they haven’t.

I talk to another paint store today. They are recommending I try Old Master Armor. At this point I think I’m going to give it a try. There is an optional Part B Hardener for it, but I don’t think I need it for these cabinet. I’ll be spraying with an HVLP Conversion gravity feed gun.
