Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JVinFL Very narrow spray pattern
I've tried using this with several different furniture projects and I have to say this product is definitely NOT designed for furniture. The finish itself is "fine", but the distribution of product/finish onto the project is poor. The spray pattern comes out too narrow, maybe 1.5 to 2", maybe even less depending on how close you get, etc. The product dries too quickly, and because of that you have to get the lacquer close to the project, which narrows the cone down further. If you're too far you're going to get dusting or a grainy finish. If this is used on a small project, sure, no problem... but if you plan on finishing furniture with this, good luck. I'm not going to put any more money into this and will sell my project "as is". You really should get the gallon lacquer if you plan on refinishing furniture, and get an HVLP sprayer (as I intend to do in the future) if you want to get an even coat.

I bought a spray can of Rust-oleum lacquer and a can of Deft lacquer. I think the rust-oleum is a little harder to use than the Deft. The Rust-oleum comes out in a finer spray area than the Deft. The spray area at about 8-12" is about 1 1/2" and seems to put more out in that smaller area than the Deft does. This might work fine for other users, but I liked the wider spray. Both end with a nice smooth fine too. Rust-oleum you can put a another coat on after a few minutes, but with the Deft you have to wait 30 minutes before applying the next coat. So the only real difference I can see is how they put out the finish to your project and the time allowed to put the next coat on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kylar Works great
Product works great, creates a nice, smooth finish when following the directions. For most small/narrow to medium sized projects, a simple up and down, or side to side, motion while spraying the product will be more than enough to ensure a proper coating. If you have a large project that you need to coat, you would be better off getting a pint/quart/gallon and a brush just to save on the cost of buying multiple spray cans.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Artmann Poor quality material, poor packaging
The spray pattern is a very narrow cone shape that does not allow the material to be applied evenly. If the can is far away enough to get even coverage, the material begins to dry too quickly and the surface is granular. If the can is close enough to the work piece to properly wet the surface so that the material flows out properly, the pattern is an uneven stripe or band. It simply isn't possible to apply this material in a way that looks anything like professional.
