Lacquer may be a common wood furniture finish preferred by woodworkers among other finishes. This has got to do with its simple applications and quick-dry because it may be a thinner finish. It provides a smooth and glossy finish while remaining durable on the wood. Again, it's immune to damages because it penetrates the wood surface.

Polyurethane is additionally a well-liked wood finish applied to supply a thick and glossy finish. It is basically a plastic during a liquid form until it dries. Polyurethane, unlike lacquer, is thick and tough to use with the spray unless a thinning agent is combined with it. The finish comes in water-based and oil-based.
