Finishing Mahogany Neck

Recommended Posts

If you want a smooth finish, it needs its pores filled.

Personally? I never bother. My necks get a thin, natural finish, not buffed out to high gloss (either oil or french polished shellac), and I leave the pores open. Never had anyone complain about either the look or the feel. Other than that, you can stain and fill in one go, or fill, then stain, or stain, then fill, and then put whatever finish you want on top of that.
