I love cocobolo but it doesn’t like me. It is difficult to get a good glue bond. I had several chunks fly off the lathe at me. Even wiping w/ acetone and using epoxy I couldn’t keep my project together on the lathe. Boxes should be easier as there shouldn’t be subject the the forces of wood turning. I also found out I am allergic to it. The saw dust causes a rash like poison ivy on me, thank God I wore a dust mask. It has been several weeks and I still have a rash on my wrists and the back of my neck. It was nasty the first few days. Be careful with it and see if you develop a reaction. Definitely wear a mask.
