Natural mahogany body finish


Do any of you have experience with finishing a body?
I bought a mahogany replacement for my RG550LTD and want to give it a natural oil finish.

Any ideas?
Do I need to use a grain filler?
What kind of oil do you use?

Just trying to revive this post since I ordered my new pickups and want to start with the body. Anyone have any tips on this natural oil finish. Been googling but no real luck so far. Thanks!
