I switched to the cone delrin bushings. You get 4 in a pack and they fit any size tube because they are tapered, and clean up easily by dropping in a jar of acetone.

Another tip, I don't know what kind of wood that is, but when I use oilier woods like rosewood or cocobolo, I always make sure to wipe the blank down real good with denatured alcohol to remove the surface oil. I do this until the rag comes off clean with no oily discoloration. Just make sure to let it dry for a few minutes before adding glue or your glue will turn white from the moisture. It will allow your glue better adhering to the wood and maybe cut down on the potential of the finish lifting.
