People also ask, what is the best finish for mahogany?
Lacquer is a top choice for finishing any type of mahogany. Lacquer dries fast, is durable and doesn't have that plastic feeling that is left over when shellac or varnish is used. With only two coats of lacquer, mahogany is sealed permanently. The first light coat of lacquer seals the pores.
Furthermore, can mahogany be stained? Naturally, the stain you tinted the filler with will color your wood — the sanding will clear it up though. If you still want to stain your mahogany a darker color, you can do so. So you get the benefit of darkened pores, filled pores, and the choice of keeping your mahogany its natural color or staining it.
Also asked, how do you maintain a mahogany deck?
Maintaining. The best way to regularly clean a mahogany deck is to frequently sweep it clear of leaves, dust and debris that can damage the surface either through encouraging the growth of mold or by abrading the finish. Hose the deck with clean water using a hose fitted with a gentle spray nozzle.
