I've followed some of the DIY threads here with great interest and may well undertake a project or 2 when time and £££ permit. Whilst I'm confident in my ability to turn a sheet of MDF into bespoke piece of AV kit (and a small pile of sawdust), how do you regular DIY'ers finish off MDF to give it a presentable finish? I'm thinking specifically about the coloured lacquer type that gives a hard shiny finish and what is the best method of applying it? I don't possess an oil free compressor and/or spraygun kit. PS I don't much fancy the veneer option. Cheers.
