We used a 'natural' tone stain on this table, which means all that gorgeous color is from the Mahogany wood itself. No dyes on this table! Over that stain we applied a 'semi-gloss' sheen finish. This finish was then hand polished to bring up the shine. The hand polishing + the pore filling gave this table a very high shine. It is almost reflective.
The photo below really shows off that 'reflective' quality of the table's new finish. I can't help but imagine the elegant dinner parties of old that were centered around this dinning table. It is now in beautiful enough condition again that hopefully it will host many more festive soirees.
