Topic tags/keywords: french polish shellac grain fill aqua coat mahogany

I’m giving french polish a shot for my table and have a question about grain filling. The top that I will apply the finish to is Ribbon African Mahogany.

On practice scrap I used pumice to fill the grain, but I’m wondering if I could just use aqua coat to do the initial grain fill and then continue the french polish after the grain is filled. Does anyone have any concerns with the approach?
