High Gloss Transparent pore filler?
Recently, I have been dabbling and dibbling in textbook after textbook looking at the wide world of wood finishing, and thought of a general idea of what kind of a finish I want, and I'm looking to apply it to a desk I'm designing.
I'm looking for danish oil rubbed into Honduran Quartersawn Mahogany coupled with some form of a high gloss pore filler.
And then something over the top to seal it all up.
I'm thinking of two oddball options here for the pore filler, which is what I'm mainly looking at.
1: Two pound cut blonde shellac caked over the top, and scraped down level with the danish oil followed by polyurethane or clearcoat.
2: Clear Glass powder laid into the pores with clearcoat over the top, or possibly clear glue mixed with glass powder caked over top and leveled just like option 1.
Main concerns is adherence to the layer that goes on top, as well as adverse effects the danish oil may have on whatever is used to fill the pores. The pore fill would need to be applied post danish oil.
Am I crazy, or is this Do-able?
