Default Cocobolo (sp)

Seems oily, how does this glue up and finish? I want to use it in a stool as the center strip so I was wondering.

Jerry...

A good wipe down with mineral spirits prior to glue up and finishing should do the trick....

Jerry, here is a small Christmas ornament I made from Cocobolo. It finished up nice with friction polish.
