Preferred Stabilizing Service?

Recommended Posts

I was going to send in some alligator juniper to be commercially stabilized. Any recommendations? River Ridge products has a nice website...but they won't die wood orders under 30lbs. Woodstablizing.com is a little more expensive, but will die small wood orders.

Any suggestions? Experiences?

Why not do your own stabilizing? You simply need an old pressure cooker, a $12. guage and a vacuum pump. I've been using Paraloid B72, a solvent based resin stabilizer used by museums, with good results, but there are other water based stabilizers that work well. Do some research. It's not as difficult as you may think.
And, I just like the idea of self sufficiency.
