Howdy fellow LJ’s, I purchased a cut-off of bloodwood. It’s about 1” thick, 24” long and 6” wide. I want to cut it in 2 length wise, glue it up and then cut it into game call blanks. The person that sold me the wood told me to use tite bond III, but I forgot to ask if I could use ordinary glue as well or is tite bond III the only glue that will glue this wood together?
Also, I wanted to know what I should do to perserve the bloodwood’s red tint? Could I apply a wax to propect all surfaces (not just end-grain)? I have some minwax floor wax that I could use…would that protect it? I didn’t notice if it had something to protect against UV damage (I believe this is what causes the wood to lose it’s red tint, right?).
