Refinishing old mahogony furniture - question
I thought this older furniture was cherry but apparently its mahogony?
Googling tells me that mahogony is sort of a dark red, tight grained.
Googling mahogony furniture comes up with all pretty formal looking furniture in a dark reddish finish - pretty much all the same.
If I try to refinish these (actually hire it out) - will I be able to change that formal looking color at all? Tone down the red? Oxidizing, adding green to the stain to kill the red, distressing......or is that just where mahogony goes? Is that why all mahogony furniture is in formal styles?
