Additional Information

Carbide tooling is essential when milling Goncalo Alves. When nailing pre-boring is required, it is recommended that screws be lubricated before inserting. Gluing requires pretreatment with solvents. While the wood can be sanded and polished to a high natural luster care should be taken to make sure proper sanding techniques are used as deep scratches may prove hard to sand out.
