Dark Mahogany Wood Finish


Recommended Posts

There are so many options for darkening up mahogany. You could use a water-based or alcohol based dye, you could use artist oil paint thinned with mineral spirits, a dark grain-filler or just use a tinted finish, any of the above (apart from the grain filler) could be used to tint poly, oil, lacquer etc. 

But all of the above aside, every piece of wood is different, so you should always do testers on your off cuts, find something you like then finish your guitar.
