Ebonizing, as I understand it, is a process of heat treating wood to obtain color through out the piece. Also called carbonizing and caramelizing. It is a process where the sugars in the wood are cooked to turn dark.

I would think PVA type glue would work on this, but if you can’t test it and if the application is critical, then I would use epoxy.
