Depending on size, you can also use a very old trick: rubbing with a piece of smooth bone or even the smooth side of an old plastic toothbrush. The pressure seems to really help close open pores in the wood. I remember “boning”(as it is called) the stock of an old Springfield ‘o3 until it was glassy smooth.
