    Default Finish of modern furniture

    I have some solid timber newish furniture as you can't make everything your self. Anyhow, I have a very big dining table that I have to cut down to a reasonable size for my new dining area, mainly the length of the top as the cut to the detachable sides will not show.

    What I want to do is refinish it in the same finish it has now, you know the the type they use today, that nice smooth matt finish that you never see a blemish in at places like Hardly Normal. So my question is what do they use that I can use with my spray gun to hopefully make it like it is now after I have cut it down to size. It's still looks like in new condition at present.

    Could be a lot of things, If it is a commercial finish 99% It is nitrocellulose lacquer, if it is really late,then it could be water based Lacquer, either way, it will be much less bother to just just strip it off and completely refinish
    than trying to match it

    Thanks China, that's what I'm thinking as well, might be the easy solution. I was hoping that seeing it is used on most modern wood commercially made furniture someone would know what they use.

    Hi SB

    Can you ask the seller who supplied or made it. Sometimes a phone call or 2 can be the best way, or you might get lucky with a stamped ticket underneath, ya just never know.

    I would just do it over,sand with fine paper then with a nitro lacquer at about 20% gloss will give you the effect you are after.

    Well pictureman, that also sounds like a good idea also, I'll keep that in mind.
