    Re: wood fiier for mahogany

    Hi Allan, I do the filling of open grain, like in Walnut with the Polymerized Tung Oil, it takes about 3 coats before the wood is filled, and it takes a couple of days to do that, I rub the oil into the grain and usually add some as the oil wicks into the grain, and then as it is wiped off, I’ll have to go back a couple of times to repeat it, as some oil will come and bleeds up/out as small drips, you’ll see it, if you don’t wipe it off, you will have to sand it off later when the oil is fully hardened, I rather wipe it of than have to sand it all again.

    I would think that shellac should work, and that hardens right quick, and you can add any other finish over that, it certainly is not going to harm your wood/turning.

    Do make some pictures and show/tell the what and how of it, it will help others that have the same questions.

      Here's one if you want to try it. I tested it a few yrs. ago and it seemed to work very well. Never did use it on a project though.
