My name is Pete (@peteskustomkoa on Instagram). I have been a woodworker, wood turner, carpenter and fine home builder in Hawaii for over twenty years. Now, as an aspiring knifemaker, I heard about Cactus Juice stabilized scales. I was hesitant at first, because I work mostly with Koa, and I have always sworn that the wood is perfect as is, with only a good hand rubbed oil finish.
I was dead wrong. Proper stabilization with the Cactus Juice from TurnTex improves the wood in every way possible! What an awesome product! Smoother sanding, better glue-up, more solid joints, zero movement, smoother finish... Just plain incredible!
