I use wood, antler, and horn for knife handles and use Cactus Juice to stabilize those natural materials. I learned how to do this from reading on the internet (many sources) and watching videos on the Turntex website. Turntex products are great! They are easy to use, cost effective, and extraordinarily effective. His videos are very informative and easy to understand. I have been totally satisfied with Turntex products (vacuum chamber and all accessories and the Cactus Juice itself) and plan to buy more juice. If there is a need to stabilize porous materials, Turntex is the answer.
