Did Ludwig use a primer on the bare wood prior to painting them black???

I just applied a stripper to some old hoops, from my initial inspection I can't see any sign of a primer. Maybe a clear shellac sealer or something though.

Well I guess I just wasn't looking hard enough,, there was a grey primer under the black lacquer.

Boy do I hate stripping paint.!!!!!

All cleaned up and ready for finishing...

I was going to tell you about the infamous grey primer, but it looks like you found that on your own.

I have stripped several of these down to bare wood and always shoot them with grey primer before finish painting (just to be completely anal and accurate about things).
