I have no experience to offer any opinion on this, but I would gracefully bow out. It may be a $10K order, but if it costs you $15K in the end, it’s not good business.

But… have you considered PEG impregnated slabs? What’s the timeline on this? There might be time to do it if you can outsource the processing. I understand that gunstock makers often do this to control wood movement.

If you can find somebody who has actually done it and had good results…
Here’s a patent on the process. Somebody owns that patent. Maybe they can do it.
