Hey Guys, apparently I have to make 5 posts here in the introduction thread before I can post or comment anywhere else, so here is #2! I hope you enjoy! Working with Macassar Ebony is easy enough, but finishing and gluing is a totally different story. If you are going to glue it up, always rough up the glue surface with a few scratches from 120 paper or coarser and then wipe it down with Acetone a few minutes prior to gluing. Otherwise this oily wood will prevent the glue from sinking down into the wood fibers and cause the joint to fail eventually. Here is a snare I build from Mac Ebony.
