working with zebrawod

I picked up a piece of zebrawood and I noticed how waxy or oily the surface felt. I've never worked with it before. Did some googling and read where care should be taken when gluing and was wondering exactly what care was meant? Titebond II ok?

Polyurethane, i.e. Gorilla Glue, is better.
If you use a PVA glue, do a fast wipedown with acetone first.

Bone glue works well with zebrawood. Haven't tried hide glue yet, but there should be little diference

A few years ago I was going to make my daughter a nice salad bowl from zebrawood. After a while I decided there must be a diareahic horse visiting my shop. Somehow i decided she might not appreciate the bowl, so we now use it here as a plant pot. The rest of that piece of zebra is still on the shelf. Any suggestions on non-stinky uses?
