When I rehab totes, I’ve found the best thing to do is make it a clean break, and use a good quality quick set epoxy, as no matter how much I’ve “de-oiled” rosewood, I’ve had failures over time, and I’ve repaired other glue failures as well. I must have done a hundred of these over the years, as well as horn repairs where I use epoxy as well. I apply a thin coat to both surfaces, not too much to avoid squeezeout.
