General Call Making Discussions / Re: Cocobolo Issues

Try using a little Teak Oil on a rag to rub the cocobolo down and see if the color comes back. I expect you generated too much heat when you sanded.

I was under the impression that oils shouldn't be used with cocobolo because of the oils already present in the wood?

James...
Thanks, it's been a fun project. I just wish I knew more about turning in general and calls in particular.

General Call Making Discussions / Cocobolo Issues
« Last post by Robert Reed on April 19, 2019, 09:01:17 PM »
Hey guys, I turned a small handle today out of cocobolo. It's the first time I've handled this species. I've read all about the finish issues and the possible irritation that it can cause but I can't find anything about what I ran into. It turned nicely and sanded to a silky smooth finish but the color has gone blotchy and pale. It's almost Gray in some spots.

Has anyone else experienced this? Will the colors eventually return? Did I do something wrong?

 Benny, best thing is to soak it in velvit oil after you turn it, then set it out in the sun.

never tried oven cleaner will have to try that.

I have done a lot of the wool and vinegar thing but just trying to figure out hot to make it a dark brown without using a dye.
