Finally done, after 1 month of curing the ghost image is gone and I got a fantastic gloss finish. I stopped buffing at medium, no need to go any further. Any fine scratches that are visible in these p ...

Ghost inage of trapezoid appeared again. I buffed again and brought it back to a shine. I will wait some more before putting the tuners on.

I don't know what is with these Photo Posting sites, they don't always work, it is really quite frustrating. I am done with PhotoBucket, now this Ingur thing is pissing me off.

I have done some more buffing. It looks fantastic in person. Some miniscule scratches can be seen in the photos under the bright lights, but for the most part I think it is done. I can hit it again be ...

Yes, this is only about a week old, some scratches, although they only show up in pictures. I don't like to wet sand, so some tiny scratches are inevitable. They will come out when I give it the final ...

Sanded from 600 through 12000, then 4 grades of buffing compound by hand. It looks really good, funny trapezoid indentation is gone, although I still can see a very faint ghost image of it with a magn ...

Sorry, I thought it was what looks like a little pin-hole around that goblet inlay.

Man, now we actually have to read the posts carefully? What the heck?? Laughing Embarassed

I only saw that when ...

Hmm, makes me wonder if there is something that is incompatible with your lacquer in that spot--possibly some uncured epoxy from the inlay, some oil/stain etc. Try some CA glue once this coat has cur ...

Added a 4th coat and got some blushing, it is a bit humid today. I had a can of Behlens Blush Eraser and it did the trick, it also seemed to make the triangle disappear. I wonder how it will look afte ...
