Sealing a Didjeridoo
A proven method for sealing didjeridoo interiors is a mix of non-toxic Titebond 2 woodglue and agave powder from an orbital sander’s dust bag.
The agave powder is best sifted through a wire strainer before mixing.
- Pour a pancake batter consistency mix in
- Swab through with a cotton cloth tied to the end of a dowel rod.
- Let didj dry hanging upside down without a mouthpiece for 24 to 48 hours
- Repeat the process at least once.
Hanging upside down will ensure that the didj. bell will be free of drip marks. A thick peanut butter consistency mix of agave’ powder and Titebond 2 makes a great wax-free and sandable mouthpiece which must be totally dry before sanding. This mix usually dries dark brown.
This mix adds to structural integrity, performance, and beauty of the didjeridoo.
