I have a unique situation. I hand craft fish fillet knives and am attempting to work with Bubinga which I believe is African Rosewood by another name. With other woods I have had phenomenal success using Minwax Helmsman’s spar urethane. I put several coats on and had a super testimonial. My knife was accidentally put in the dishwasher by a customer and came out with flying colors!! So I’m locked into that coating application.

Now the problem. I’ve tried preping as well as re-surfacing with lacquer thinner, acetone, etc. with no success. Under all circumstances the wood remains tacky even after several days of drying. For me the catch is… has to withstand being exposed to water much of the time and I fear using some kind of oil treatment just will not maintain the integrity of the wood.

Have your say...
