Pretty good stuff
Behlen Water-Based Grain Filler, Mahogany, Quart
Obviously there is widespread misunderstanding of how this product should be used. Traditionally furniture made with Honduras mahogany (now mostly Sapele) was first treated with a dark reddish stain before the final topcoat was applied. When you apply the stain over the filler that weird pink color disappears and instead imparts a nice rosy glow to the finish. If you're looking for a natural finish then use a neutral or clear grain filler. I would have given this product five stars but for two problems. When leveling the first coat of filler with sandpaper some of the pores unpack requiring a touch-up. Also, it is very difficult to level the filler inside carved detail. Otherwise I like it.

Wish I had read the reviews first!
I wish I had seen these reviews before I bought the mahogany color but, after all, I WAS using it with mahogany. Yes, it is a strange pink color. I think Woodcraft should pull this product and give a free can of brown to those of us who chose this color in good faith.

Bubble gum pink!!!
I bought Mahogany color because I need to pore fill some mahogany. This stuff is bright pink, and dries the same way. I wrote to Woodcraft and Behlen to see if something was wrong. Both said it's correct, and I can add acrylic dye to it if I want a different color. Forget that. Why is this called "Mahogany"??
Color is very bad
I had to fill a mahogany bed headboard and decided to get the mahogany filler, despite the magazine article suggesting Brown for mahogany wood. My choice was a big mistake. The mahogany filler really does look like Pepto Bismal and provides an extremely fake looking pink color to the wood. I feel mislead by Behlen. I now have to order the brown filler. The filler did provide a very smooth surface.
I am working with some Sapele and was directed towards the Mahogany tint.
After first application it looked like Pepto. I sanded and applied a Nitro coat but the color was just not there.
My first thought was I did not have it mixed properly. After more mix and stir, same result.
It does appear to fill the grain as advertised but will not work for my project color.
