    I recently bought a Lackner Squire at an antique store. The finish was in very bad shape. I have disassembled the clock and cleaned the wood. I was amazed to discover it is solid walnut or cherry...no veneer!!! A very nice piece.

    Anyway, it was in such bad shape, I can't tell whether it was originally gloss or semi-gloss. I plan to restain it cherry, and spray Deft clear lacquer...either gloss or semi-gloss...to finish.

    Let me know what you think!?!...and thanks!

    I have no problem with doing exactly as you state. It's not ancient, and will look great with a little TLC :)

    I think it was probably originally gloss.
    I think I'd finish it to MY taste.
    I think you should finish it to YOUR taste.
