I have been asked to make a cane for an elderly friend. I intend to use
some wood scrounged from pallets that came from Brazil. The stuff is pink,
finely grained and downright stubborn about surrendering nails! It's tough
... I never break it, but I often pull the nail heads right through the
planks nailed to it.
I just wish I knew what its name is.
However, that's not the point of this posting. What I am really bugging
you guys for is some glue advice.
I plan to make this cane by ripping 4 pieces lengthwise, gluing them to
best show the grain and then turning it on my lathe.
This is not an oily wood. What sort of adhesive do you recommend?
I am leaning toward either a polyurethane, rubberized superglue or 30
What say you?
