Gray is my favorite color these day's. With 15 degree sheen looks so luxurious.
Awesome job !

Just getting a little "technical" here, because I know what you mean, but not really.
Gloss is measured in units at 60°, and sheen is measured in units at 85°.

This was a refinish, The dark was Hydoroplus straight from the can shot with a 395 AAA, the Swiss coffee was Chemcraft variset shot with ED655, my process follows the PDF. Clean, sand 180, shoot aqua prime, sand 320, three finish coats on front for WB and two on insides, for solvent born two finish coats on each side. The windows were shot with Sherwin-Williams pro industrial acrylic the walls and ceiling were duration. I wait an hour between coats then when I shoot the fronts I usually let the back dry overnight. I don’t do a ton of cabinet jobs probably 4 to 5 a year. Gloss was 35

Technically speaking, gloss and sheen are two aspects of the same thing: The amount of light reflected off a painted surface independent of its color. But to the eye, they are very different: Gloss is shiny and crisp while sheen looks softer and has more depth and luster.

Gloss and Sheen are specified in the PDS. It is a unit of measurement.
Gloss is measured in units at 60°, Sheen is measured in units at 85°.

I was confused by how "degree" was being used in context.

"10-35 degrees" doesn't tell the level of sheen or gloss. I re-read your posts, and it is clearer you were referring to 10-35 Sheen, and not Gloss. correct?

Most people just call it a 20 gloss (20 units on the gloss scale) which is equivalent to an "eggshell" sheen.. He's just trying to school ya technogod.
