Removing stain from mahogany

I'm trying to remove a red stain from a 100 year-old mahogany bedroom set before applying PU. The paint & varnish comes off OK but I'm left with the reddish stain in the wood. Is there any product that is made to lift the stain out of the wood?

At your home center or paint store look for a two part bleach. It actually comes in two separate containers you mix to use. Brand name isn't important - they all have the same two ingredients, hydrogen perxoide and sodium hydroxide. Apply according to directions on the product.
