I've previously made a classical guitar using cocobolo for back and sides and used epoxy throughout for glueing the coco. I'm currently working on another and am at the stage where I'll be glueing the tentellones or peones to join top and ribs. I normally use Titebond 1 for this with other woods, but feel wary about using it with coco, especially here, where the joint has to be very sound. On the other hand, the thought of individually using epoxy for each tentellone doesn't fill me with enthusiasm. Do other makers have any thoughts on this?

Eric - yes, Spanish heel and traditionally built using a solera. I have an even nicer set of coco back and sides for future use - I'll attach a pic.
