I go through TurnTex because they are always top notch, everything comes as ordered, most of the time faster than anticipated but products always work out beautifully.

My first order with TurnTex Woodworks

I placed my very first order with TurnTex for epoxy resins and colors. Haven't had the chance to try them out yet, but I received everything in perfect order. Fast shipping, competitive pricing and very friendly customer service.  will definitely order more from them in the future!

New to Cactus Juice

The product worked exactly as advertised. What I really appreciated was the personal interest on how successful I was in using the cactus juice. I would highly recommend TurnTex to anyone wanting to stabilize wood for their projects.

Great unit, fantastic company!

I just purchased a unit to do knife handles (scales) and just love the stabilized wood it produces. Prior to this I was using Min Wax stabilizer in a homemade mason jar vac and Mityvac, it was a real pain and I could not really get a good vacuum and full penetration of the scales this way.  The TurnTex unit makes it very easy to work with during glue up and assembly of my knives.  I did have to figure out how to mark/tag the wood scales so I know what type of wood it is once it comes out of the vac chamber, pencil and markers do not survive the juice and vacuum cycle, so I now use a automatic center punch set to light punch and press dots in the end of the scales, then do a list of what mark is what wood.  You do have to be careful with brittle woods so you dont get an end grain split, but this works great.  I'm very happy with my purchase and the high quality of the unit.

Allumilite Dyes

I used several colors today on an epoxied tumbler. Instructions would have been nice on needing to cut tops of bottles off to get to product (hands a bit stained). Mixed easily into epoxy and went on smoothly. I will need to play with ratios to decrease translucency. Will order more colors soon.

Cactus Juice

The cactus juice works great. Turns old, punky rotten wood into rock solid knife sales and takes a smooth as glass polish. Will come back again and again for more. Thanks for the great product.

user friendly business

Although, I have been turning for a while now, I am new to stabilizing. This website is set up to make it easy ror beginners. With excellent instructions, Q & A help section, and an owner who is willing to answer your questions whether he's herd them a million times or not, without making you feel like the village idiot... which reminds me, I have a question!

Great service at Turntex Woodworks. It's hard to believe so few people could do such a good job. The website is easy to understand in order from. And the added bonus of numerous instructional ideas are great. And it's great to be made in the USA. Hoorah

Great products and great service!

Expect nothing less than excellence from Curtis. I bought a double sized vac chamber and the temperature tamer unit. A one man show that cares about his customers.  When my setup went down, he went out of his way to get me back on track.

Oven Tamer

Just started using the Oven Tamer and it's a great product. It stays within one half of a degree of the set temperature. I found that it is best set up in a draft free area, as drafts from shop coolers, or fans fluctuate the oven temperature making it difficult for the Oven Tamer to stay set at the selected temperature. Curtis replied to an email question within two hours. Good customer service and a good product....

Three times a satisfied customer

I have purchased cactus juice stabilizing resin three times from TurnTex and have achieved excellent results on pen blanks and knife scales.  On my first order, Curtis took the time to answer my initial questions by phone  to get me off to a good start with the process.   I enjoy doing business with TurnTex because I know expert advice is only a phone call away.

New stabilizing chamber

I had the opportunity to use the stabilizing chamber from TurnTex.  Before I bought it, I had the

opportunity to use another style chamber so I had something to compare it with.  I'm glad I chose 

the one from TurnTex.  As far as I'm concerned it is the top of the line.  The workmanship speaks of quality

and attention to detail.  It is a chamber that will give you many years of service.  You can't go wrong if you

buy from TurnTex

Excellent service

I purchased some Cactus Juice and Alumilite from Curtis. The order was processed quickly and I received my products  within a few days. Being new to wood stabilizing I  needed some advise on purchasing a vacuum pump so I reached out to Curtis. He sent me a link to an in depth article that he wrote on vacuum pumps that answered all my questions and provided me with some valuable tips. I explored his web site and found many other relevant articles and info that will be helpful.                                                                          Thanks Curtis

I place and order, I get confirmations for "order received" within minutes if not instantly,  "order shipped" not very long after, and a couple days later for  "order delivered"

As usual... Right...and right on time. Everytime!

Thanks Curtis and crew.

Top quality products and excellent service

My order shipped out the same day, and they even read and responded to the comments I made on the order. Always good results with Cactus Juice and the dyes they sell for it. I wouldn't be able to do anything at all without the extensive help/faq section on the TurnTex website! And when all else fails, there is a fast reply either by online chat or email. A great company to do business with!

Turquoise Stabilization

After Stabilizing 100 Pounds of Turquoise or so, I can say with great pleasure that this stuff WORKS.   Not often that I will endorse a Product, but this is an exception, I would recommend this to anyone looking to use it with Stabilizing Turquoise or any other Lapidary Application.

Cactus Juice

I used Cactus Juice last year (2017) and was very satisfied with the results.  It was easy to use and it stabilized my antler horns that I used for knife handles, and the hardness was very satisfactory.  I had no fears about the finished product and knew that my finished knife handles were very much superior to what I had previously produced.


I ordered Cactus Juice again this year and expect to receive the same high quality results.
