Veneer or solid mahogany BDK ???

Usually i use a brass brush and a mixture of 90% methanol and 10% water first, if hardwood, then lacquer thinner once softened up to a degree, i hate the stuff personally, i still use the old solvent base type like behlens por o pac. But to each his own.:yes:

If it's veneer, let us know ok? That is or could be a different story!!

It's solid mahogany. I did a glue up table top for a coffee table. Just didn't think about tinting the filler before application. I just finished scrubbing it down with lacquer thinner and it seems to have removed every trace of the pink filler.

Thanks for the advice.
