Product Information:

Behlen Water Base Grain Filler is designed to allow the professional or home craftsman to create a smooth, closed grain surface on open grain woods like oak, mahogany and cherry. It applies easily, levels smoothly, dries quickly (usually in 2 to 3 hours) and sands to a finishing grit smoothness. The grain filler accepts any Behlen water base stain or finish. Allow overnight dry time if using solvent base stains and finishes.

It is available in three grain enhancing shades. One quart.

    Comments about 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.

    Comments about Behlen Water-Based Grain Filler, Mahogany, Quart :

    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.

    Comments about Behlen Water-Based Grain Filler, Mahogany, Quart :

    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"??

    Comments about Behlen Water-Based Grain Filler, Mahogany, Quart :

    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.

    Pepto?

    Comments about Behlen Water-Based Grain Filler, Mahogany, Quart :

    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.
