Gluing wenge with TBIII shouldn’t cause issues with nicely fit joints. I find that most (most) glue visability issues will come when gluing light colored wood with a brownish glue. That fine brown line will always show if not stained. The goldish brown lighter grain in the winge co-inside nicely with glue. My progect page shows a wenge and sapele hall table on which I vaneered two sides of each leg to match the flat grain all around. There are lots of long glue lines and I noticed nothing offensive about them…................................;-J

If you joint the pieces properly, no glueline will be visible. I had not problem using TB3 with Wenge.

Have your say...
