    Its viscous enough that it soaks into the cork fairly well, and I know from trying to repair one I screwed up, that it bonds EXTREMELY well. I poke it into the base of the inlay with a toothpick, it becomes almost a "mechanical" bond. Also, the epoxy I use remains fairly flexible when its cured, Like I said....secret sauce.:thumb: Just did an article for the journal on how to do it, hope to do a follow up very soon, check it out.
