Default brazillian red wood

Got some brazillian Red wood and I am trying to find info on glueing and finishing.

I went thru a bunch of info on the internet and it mentioned it may have problems glueing but no suggestions on how to solve this problem. Also a UV protectant finish was suggested.

Has anybody worked with it and do you have any suggestions?

I started milling it and the dust is really hard on the sinuses. Had to use a dust mask. Also the red dust is every where in the shop.

Any help is apperciated.

Mike

As far as gluing procedures I have looked and came up with nothing, My suggestion is if you have enough wood I would mill a few small pieces and try different gluing techniques like butt joints edge gluing and miter or half lap and see what happens using your normal glue Good luck and let us know...

Default Pics of wood

Came up with one site last night that suggested a high quality water proof glue or epoxy. I will do some sample glueing and see what works.

HI Mike

I have used the items below and it works very well

Wipe the stock down with the alcohol and then let it dry and then put the glue in place, let it dry over night..

Hi Mike

I got it from HD,the Alcohol from the drug store..

by the way this stuff works on

(Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene)

UHMW to make jigs and fixtures for your table saw , router table, etc.
UHMW Polymer (plastic) is a linear polyethylene with a molecular weight in the range of 3,000,000 to 6,000,000. This value represents the "average molecular weight". Therefore UHMW is 10 times heavier than regular high density polyethylene.
