I'm trying to get started finishing radio/TV cabinets and I'm having trouble finding toner lacquer in the local brick&mortar stores. I've struck out at hardware stores and paint places, and searching online only finds online stores of the makers of the product. Is there any place in driving distance that stocks this stuff so I don't have to wait for shipping (kinda need to get this job done now or nix the project for a long time).

Have you tried the Woodcraft stores, several in WI.

Overnight shipment.

There are paint & finish experts on the phone too. I have spoken to them, they know their stuff...

Agreed, I'd check Woodcraft first. I bought some Mohawk toner at the store on 108th St before they became Rockler, but that was 10+ years ago so it'd pay to call them to see if they still carry it.

Edit: A quick check of Mohawk's distributor list no longer lists Woodcraft: https://www.mohawk-finishing.com/where- ... stributor/

It looks like Woodcraft has Behlen's Master toning lacquer in stock: https://www.woodcraft.com/products/behl ... ark-walnut

I ended up going to woodcraft a few days ago. They had a toner lacquer color that after a few coats made a good approximation of the original (half gone) toner lacquer that I stripped off the cabinet I was working on (a few final tweaks to the electronics and that set will be in my display room)...That can will also probably work for a couple of other cabinets I have in the works.
Thank you to everyone who replied with help.

Another vote for Woodcraft
But take care, not ALL Woodcraft stores carry Mohawk toner.
The Indianapolis store has a REALLY nice selection.
But the Cincinnati store does not carry it. The guy said the reason is they are a company store and Indianapolis is not.
