The best material I’ve found to harden soft spalted wood is marine grade epoxy thinned with 15% acetone. It’s as thin as water and penetrates deep into the soft wood. I also use it to harden the surface of patterns I make for my carving duplicator.

Roger that, though on small areas I’ve also used CA glue with good success.
