this is kind of an oddball question, but maybe someone out there can help me out. i live in africa - i'm in mali right now, but just moved here from the democratic republic of congo. in the drc, there's lots of wenge wood around and it's used to make furniture, picture frames, carvings, etc. i bought a few things made from wenge as souvenirs. the problem is that now i've moved to mali where the climate is incredibly dry (it is a desert after all) and the wenge is drying out, like, really drying out. there's nowhere near the same amount of moisture in the air as there was in the drc. so, knowing that wenge is used by luthiers in some basses, do you have any tips for caring for it? the only hitch is that it's hard to find things like furniture polish around here. is there some kind of homebrew i can use to care for the wood? kerosene, peanut oil, etc? baby oil? any ideas?
