I’ve cut my pieces to size and am ready for the glue up (cocobolo to birdseye maple). There are some burn marks on both woods…is there any issue with gluing up the pieces “as is”, or do I have to scuff them up a bit? Thanks

Do you mean you have burn marks on your edges. Should be of no consequence as long as your pcs. are true enough to allow firm clamping. Do you mean on the face?,thats another issue. Good luck, JB

I meant on the edges. So, no sweat. Thanks.

Hrmm, I’ve been told significant burning can interfere with achieving a good glue bond. On the other hand, a small hint of burning here or there doesn’t get me concerned and doesn’t seem to cause any problems.
