Are there any specific things one should be aware of in using blood wood and gluing it up with other woods? I recently had a stool top fail at the joint between the blood wood and maple and at the red cedar joint. I was drilling through using a 3/8 forester following a pre-drilled hole. I used Tight Bond III to glue it up. I shall cease using it till I know what I am doing. Love the color,and picked it up with a fella's stock so it was dirt cheap. If you would like to see photos I can provide them.
