ebony and rosewood treatment

Recommended Posts

How do you treat the ebony and rosewood surfaces before gluing.

I brush it with a cloth moistured with spirit.

I have heared about a highly diluted shellack coat before gluing.How does it work?

Best wishes ,

Stepan: I don`t use nothing for ebony. I`ve heard that warming the ebony surface before gluing (some do this with a hairdryer) helps a lot.

In the case of rosewood, it`s a bit resinous, and perhaps some derisination is required, but I don`t have experience with this wood.
