This Nice #603 Bedrock showed up in the mail today and immediately went to the top of the restore queue. I have been looking for one for a long time. The last picture it sits with its new step brother.

Looks nice, Don! What do you use to glue the tote? I have a broken MF type 2 cocobolo tote to glue, but I've been afraid to jump into it due to the residual oils in the wood. Technically, I have TWO to fix like that, but one might just be a fill & shape due to the fact that it was badly glued sometime in the way back when.

Hey Glen- if you still need the info on gluing up exotic oily wood like rosewood or cocobolo , here you go.

i first wipe down both sides of the break with acetone to remove the oil from the wood and anything else that could get in the way of a good glue up.  then i use Gorilla Glue 5 minute epoxy.  rubber bands seem to hold the pieces together best, due to the curves and all that.  i have a #6 that you cannot tell was glued unless i point it out.
