In Response To: tortoise shell repair (Rhea Gary)

What color is the Tortoise. Blond or brown - dark brown? Generally gluing tortoise shell is very tricky. You should always use the same glue that was used make the box. That would be a animal glue. You should make sure the glue is very transparent because tortoise shell gets its color from the substrate surface. That can white, yellow or red. The rest of the gluing down should be done much like gluing down veneer and those instructions can be found in a number of pages on this web site.
