This may not help much but that never stopped me.

Today I watched Rough Cutt with Tommy Mac and some other guy. Anyway they were building a piece out of Mahogany. They didn’t say what kind of Mahogany it was. When it came to the finish they mixed some dye in shellac an rubbed it on with what looked like an ordinary rag. It really pop the grain and gave it nice rich look. Sorry they didn’t say what color the dye was or how strong is was mixed. Next they sanded the price down and sprayed it with satin lacquer. it looked really nice to me.
