General Information[edit]

"DymondWood is thin layers of real wood that have been dyed and are bonded together with phenolic resin under tremendous heat and pressure."

Turning Dymondwood[edit]

Dymondwood tends to chip easily at the ends of the blanks where the grain isn't supported.  To prevent chip-out, put a small drop of thin CA on a piece of plastic baggy.  Dip the ends of the blank into the CA so it soaks into the end grain of the Dymondwood and strengthens the end grain.  Use care not to get the CA into the brass tube.
