In Response To: What finish on this antique english mahogany desk? (Edwin Hermans)

The brown that you are getting is probably the result of oxidation of the wood. Mahogany ages to a brown/black. The original finish would have been shellac. You can get shellac in various natural colors from: woodfinishingsupplies.com. You might try some garnet shellac.
