Cocobolo is very oily and I've had problems getting a good CA finish on it. I find it works better after a wipe down with acetone. I also do this with BOW. Just a thought, in addition to using fresh CA.

Edit: I see Tony beat me to this suggestion. :-)
Oh, and I HAVE developed an allergic reaction to it, so I sadly no longer use it.
