I am sending Verawood to a foreign woodworker who has no experience so far with working Verawood (Argentinian Lignum Vitae).
One of the requirements of creating my chess pieces is to drill a hole and stick a non-lathable sculptural component onto the lathed chess shaft; gluing would be needed to hold the components together.
Have there been any success stories on gluing this stubborn waxy wood? Your anonymous testimony will greatly help this woodworker who’s building my chess set.
(Half Verawood, half Steamed Swiss-pear).
On a side note, how many days in a row should one leave Verawood exposed to the sun or a Lamp in order to transform it green?
Thanks so much for the help.
