Black Lacquer is applied after priming--these pictures are of the fresh first coat. The first coat will then get sanded and receive a second coat of black lacquer with a possible a third a and then a clear top coat
The towers still have just one coat of Black lacquer but I wanted to install the Brass Hardware to check the fit.
The Stands are in the finish process-This includes polishing up the Brass-Here are a "few" of the shop-made brass pieces
Partially assembled to see how the brass pieces are fitting.
