Hi could someone please describe how to best refinish wood furniture in a black lacquer finish. I see so many pieces that have been refinished in a black lacquer from the original wood finish with varying results. Most dealers on Ist dibs will simply say "newly refinished" or "restored" without any mention of how exactly they restored or refinished. I think it is safe to assume that dealers are going the easiest or sometimes the only route by slapping on some black stuff to cover prior damage. My real point though is, I want to refinish some vintage pieces in a black lacquer, and while having tried in past with pretty good results by simply using india ink and then top-coated with a Deft spray lacquer. I would still like some feedback from the pro's out there. Thanks in advance!
