ebony and epoxy *PIC*

R Acuna
>I have turned a shift knob for my truck out of scrap wood and inlayed a ring of ebony in the top. Im using surfboard two part resin and the epoxy does not set on the ebony ring. I have used this resin on other woods and its great. Is ebony that oily that it wont accept the resin? It just stays wet and then I have to wipe it off and leave a mess like in the pics. Anyone have any ideas? Thnx. R
