Refinishing mahogany bedroom set. prestain vs woodglue filler and peeling veneer.?

Wood working experts! I have a beautiful mahogany bedroom that's pretty beat up. (especially the nightstand which has a veneer panel that's peeling up, it appears to be the only piece made with veneer) I need tips on how to refinish (and how to deal with the peeling veneer).

I'm also wondering what's the difference between woodgrain filler and prestain and if I should use either/both.

Something like restor-a-finish perhaps? I was thinking about using Tung or Linseed oil as the final finish (want something a bit lighter than just casing it in polyurethane)
Update: Wood grain filler vs prestain
