thanks earllex, lacquer is the only way to go. my other choice would be conversion varnish but more expensive and for a one time project in white the spray gun would have to be cleaned real good. i used a 20 dollar harbor freight gun.

@ken, all the lip moulding and other plant on mouldings i did with a ogee bit and micro pined them on with a little glue. its the little things that can bring it all together. i also used a core box bit for the flutes. thanks

That mantel looks good. Like the design especially the raised panels and the paint job. Nice to see it installed. Well done!
