I have seen a few people apply CA to the area they are going to route to prevent tearout, as well as using it to glue in the rosette itself. Does this not stain the wood even when sanded off?

I have flooded a lot of different woods with CA. It stains the wood quite severely unless you sand it. I remember a roasted maple fretboard that split and I was going to throw it away. I flooded the crack and clamped it. I thought it would dry clear and I waited and waited for it to "dry". I forgot about it and I found it like a year later. I was about to toss it when I thought I would sand it a bit to see if it lightened up. It completely disappeared. I would test it on the wood you will be gluing up but it "should" be OK if you can sand it well after.

It works well for drop filling voids in wood as well prior to finish.

Cheers Peter.
