ElkHamr… How long have you been spraying lacquer over oil? How has this finish held up in use for you? I've been building cabinets and furniture for 30+years and lacquer over oil is not a recommended practice. The instructions on lacquer cans state this. You want a clean wood surface to start with. Then sanding sealer is applied in several coats to fill the pores of the wood, lightly sanding between coats and then apply the lacquer in as many coats as to satisfy yourself. When and if you have trouble with your system you would have to strip the whole stock to start over… you can't patch lacquer. The Tung oil is the hardest oil known to man… very durable. When you notice wear on a tung oil finish you just give the stock another coat… no stripping ;-).
