I’m working on a project for which the primary wood is African Mahogany. It has a very open grain structure and Im in the process of experimenting with some finishes. I would like to have a “close-to-the-wood”, somewhat “matte” or “satin” finish. I would like to fill the pores so that it’s nice and smooth. I bought some water based Behlen’s Grain Filler but I’ve been getting less than desirable results. I’ve heard that there are several grain filling techniques out there…
Im wondering what you have found to work the best and what might be the easiest…
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
