I’ve searched many forums including the ones here at LJ, and I haven’t found a satisfying source of info on wood stabilizing, either to suggest good products or the techniques used to accomplish the desired result. I’m set up with a vacuum system for veneer, and am considering building/purchasing a chamber for stabilizing small DRY pieces of wood, primarily for knife handles. Green wood stabilization is also something I’d like to try.
Could everyone who has experience with stabilizing wood please suggest a product, either commercially available or homemade, along with the step-by-step procedure for using that stabilizing product? Posting your own instructional videos on YouTube would be great also.
And if a product is especially evironmentally friendly, easy to clean up & reuse, the better it is that everyone knows about it. From the ridiculously cheap to the frighteningly expensive product, let’s leave no stone unturned if possible.
I think lots of people (even folks not yet members of LJ) would benefit from a nice forum post that was a one-stop-shop for good info on this subject.
If there is a good forum with this info already out there, please post a link.
