Today I tried gluing a simple pen blank using holly and blackwood Gabon. I was gluing the small pieces end grain to end grain. I tried at first to use System 3, 5 min epoxy but I did not work the blank for about 5 hours. That came apart very easily. Then I tried CA and that too came apart too easily.
My question is what glue do you people use to glue 2 woods such as these??? I was sceptical to use TitebondII because of the exotic oily wood. I cut the pieces on a tablesaw so the cuts were sweet. Maybe they were to smooth and I should have roughed up?????? I glued them basically right away after cutting.
Any help or suggestions is appreciated.
