    lacquer over mahogany

    Is there any issues applying lacquer over mahogany? No stain or BLO will be applied, just the lacquer.

    Thanks

    Nope, no problem at all. Lacquer goes on fine over mahogany.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    I use it on pens made from mahogany. No problem.

    Ab-so-lutely the perfect finish for Mahogany. After the first coats, buff with a fine paper and fill the pores with Paste Wood filler of the correct color. The allow to dry and re-buff off revealing a smooth surface, then finish coating with Lacquer for a glass like finish.

    Can somebody recommend a good clear grain filler for mahogany. I want to fininsh the wood in its natrual look, no stain, than use lacquer to cover.

    I tried Behlen water based but I didnt like the results.

    Thanks in advance.
