My first attempts at lacquering

This is one of my first attempts at re-lacquering a Watson Praxis. The old lacquer was almost non-existant so I stripped it off using ammoniated cleaner (nasty stinky stuff), then sanded, polished and grained the tube before applying lacquer.

The lacquer is a turmeric and shellac based lacquer. It’s okay but I feel it needs to be tougher than it is. It doesn’t look like it will last 100 years. This week I shall be trying to perfect my lacquer recipe by adding some resins, wish me luck!
