Hello out there
Has anyone on this forum ever worked with coca bola wood from
I was wondering what to use to seal this wood with to keep it
Thanks for any response
Cocobolo is a very oily wood and needs a coat of sanding sealer or shellac before you do any sort of final finish on it, after you have wiped it down with lacquer thinner. I've used it only for turnings, but my pen and stopper blanks haven't showed any warping--and they are dry.
