Wenge and Cocobolo. I took the one inch thick Cocobolo and resawed it into three pieces then planed them to 1/4 inch think. This wood is just to heavy to leave it thick. I then glued the pieces onto a piece of Birch plywood for streangth with some poly glue. I also washed the Cocobolo with Acetone till almost clear. This is some very oily wood. The finish is Enduro-var water based poly. does not spray well out of the can as I had to thin and use drytime extender. Then had to finish the finish with Micro-mesh sand paper. 1500 to 12000 grit. After it cures then I will polish that out as well.
