Lots of options.

Wax as pore filler and finish per Don Williams with a polissoir

Or you can use pumice and do a full french polish..mahogany+french polish == furniture of royalty. I did that once, and the results are epic, but the amount of work for a full french polish on a sizeable piece is a committment!

Pure tung oil, let it cure for a week or two, then shellac then furniture wax is easy and produced great results for me.
