Default The worst 3 words you can hear

In finishing...

Black. Lacquer. Countertop.

I was reminded of this unit I built 5 or 7 years ago as I ran into the client the other day... says it still looks great.

But if ever you hear those 3 words together.... run for zee hills. Shows EVERYTHING.



The funk on the bottom is glare, I promise. It's clean as a whistle.

I went with conversion varnish actually.
Did you know they make 3 different shades of black?

so true. And even though you can buff it out, it's certainly an incentive to get your spray settings dialed in.
On the rare occasion where someone wants a finish that looks like a Steinway, I find myself torn between the excitement of being able to do something that looks like that, and the agony of knowing what's involved in getting there.

Many years ago I worked for a Scandinavian furniture store and we carried a line of laquered modular casework in black or white. It was great stuff, but had to be handled with great care to avoid marring the laquer finish.

Of course there's three shades of black
We have black.
then there's really black.
Then ,Hey I'm not kidding this is really black! black

Is that picture 7 years old
and is that a hang on the wall tv?
If it is, either time is going really fast
or I just realized there is such a thing.
Because honestly I just got one of those
I thought I was up to date now.
On the other hand I just got one because
it's affordable now because next week
they are going to introduce one that
you can jump into and be a part of the movie.

I guess that there are three shades of black should come as no surprise as we have about 40 shades of white. I remember the first time years ago when my Dad asked me to get him a pint of white from our basement. I grabbed the first one I saw and was shocked when I was told that I had the wrong white.
