I received a group of 6 non-stabilized spalted wood pen blanks. Tried to turn one, and had a large chunk come out almost immediately. I was able to finish it, but mostly with sandpaper for shaping. I saw a stabilizing liquid on line. Has anyone us...

I began my academic career in Industrial Arts, intending to teach shop and drafting in high school, but got sidetracked into Speech Pathology. I was only 15 units away from a B.A. in Industrial Arts when I changed majors. I never lost the love of woodworking, especially the lathe. I have been very creative, artisticly throughout my life, making and selling art my whole life. Now, I am retired after working 44 years, and am really enjoying working in my workshop, as well as on my HO Train layout.
I am married to the same wonderful woman for 39 years, and she works beside me in the shop as well as on the trains. I have two daughters, 3 grandchildren and a dog. We like to travel, and have been in 49 of the 50 states (Hawaii is #50 and we are cruising there this year).
