I think you are talking about the Cocobolo's. We should ask Rob, it does seem that they took the finish differently.
If he oil rubbed them like he did Big Hitter's...I may have to sell a body part to be able to get two.
Must add here, you could blindfold me and hand me any of my wood REO's. I can guess the Cocobolo every time. That smooth feel, the weight, nothing else is like that wood.

If you are referring to some other 'danger', you'll have to elaborate. The vv circuit has short, reverse battery, over temp, over discharge etc protection, so I'm not aware of anything that might be an issue.

I was saying that the poly makes my hands sweat ... a lot.
The only other Woodvil I have that rob first tried polyurethane on I took steel wool to it and got rid of it.
I love the cool looks of the stabilized wood though. I just figure I'm holding it more than I'm looking at it. And once I held a Cocobolo with just an oil finish it was all over for me.
The VV is my third 'bolo
All kinds of REO mods, pair of MB Chalice attys.
Pair of Zen Sidewinders.
well my new VV woodvil is going to need a extra special juice I better get busy that only gives me 11 to DIY a juice for it
Thanks for the replies all. I'll look at the cocobolo mods once they are posted on the site and see if they look glossy there.
I'm no rocket surgeon...
