Customer Comments

Cactus Juice is a great product that I am very satisfied with. I'm even more satisfied with the customer service that Curtis gives to his customers. Every time I have emailed or left a message with a question Curtis has responded within an hour. He is a class act!!!

This is a great product, it gives the craftsmen the ability to keep an important part of their craft under their own control. I am able to experiment with different dyes and different woods. And after the blank is cured I am left with a quality piece of stabilized wood, without the large bill from the "professionals" or the long down time waiting on snail mail. I am a return customer, and will continue to be a return customer.

Wow, what can I say. I make custom razor and razor sets, and have been toying with the idea of stabilizing and dying woods. It is important that my woods are 100% water proof. I soon joined the wood stabilizing group on Facebook. This is an amazing site and Curtis of TurnTex is a legend. I ordered 2 gallons of Cactus Juice and got to work. Curtis was at my beckoning call with any questions. I do have to say I am more than satisfied with the result. His products are top notch and when following his instruction via Facebook and YouTube you cannot go wrong. Thank you Curtis, I am now a permanent customer.

I got a gallon of this for my first try at stabilizing. I had some issues to work out at first, but with the help of Curtis I was able to get through it. He was willing to talk me through every issue I had, no matter time of day or night. Very helpful top notch customer service.

I knew when I ordered the vacuum chamber that it would take a while. However it was worth the wait. I received the chamber and all the hookups ready to stabilize wood. First class craftsmanship and a easy to read but very thorough instruction manual. Thanks!!

Ordered Turntex new stabilizing chamber to stabilize some locally found spalted oak with great results. Chamber is a definite improvement over the previous chambers. Now I can let wood soak in cactus juice for days at a time without worrying about the chamber. I would recommend Turntex products to anyone that is interested in processing your own pen or knife blanks.

Had a problem with my chamber. Contacted Curtis and within 48 hours a new chamber (bottom only) was on the way to me. No charge. It arrived. Worked perfectly. My stabilizing equipment was out of warranty by 6 months and Curtis still took care of my problem. In my opinion that is service above and beyond what one usually receives or expects in this day and age. Thanks, Curtis.

I purchased a gallon of the cactus juice and as always it works great. No more throwing away beautiful wood because it had become punky. Worth every penny and it arrived in just a few days. Great product.

This was my first time to use the cactus juice. I was 100% satisfied with the product. I found some wood on Matagorda beach which I believe is tamarind. After drying and stabilizing it made some beautiful pens. Thanks Norman Horton

Customers always ask what I use to stabilize my wood. I am happy to say Cactus Juice. They want to hear it's what I am using as it is the most trusted name in the business. They have come to expect any professional wood worker to use Cactus Juice and won't accept anything less.

I have been very impressed with the level of customer service provided by Curtis. Once I had received the vacuum chamber I had ordered I have been very pleased with the quality of craftsmanship that went into it and with how well it works. I will certainly continue to do business with TurnTex. Simply put, It has been a very pleasant consumer experience all around, and that is hard to find in todays business world.

Wow this stuff is great... I have been using it for various projects and I'm super happy with the results. Spalted tamarind was my nightmares, not with Cactus Juice! That stuff becomes a rock... Thanks for this awesome product! Going on my 10th gallon now.

Product showed up at my door step sooner than expected! It was packaged very well. I have not used it yet but, if it is half as good as all the folks on the wood working forums and youtube say it is, i'm sure it will be great.

I just ordered a bunch of items from Curtis that had to be to me on a specific date for a demonstration I was doing for my club. Curtis made sure I had everything I needed and that it was delivered in time for my event. He also went above and beyond by donating a Vacuum chamber to our club to raffle off to help in our funding. The event went off without a hitch and was very well received. The Arizona Wood turner's Association would like to Thank You Curtis for your extreme generosity. And I thank You personally for always providing such fantastic service and support and for all the late night help when I need it. Ken

Top notch product with top notch service. Even with other brands of stabilizing resin on the market now I will be sticking with the first one to hit the market: Cactus Juice! Thank you Curt for making this available to all wood turners, from hobbyist to professional.

My wife (to be) and I have been turning and selling pens for profit for two years now. We are always striving to offer our customers something new and exciting in a pen. This desire and some research led us to Cactus Juice. Upon looking into the product we found much more than we ever expected, relentless testing over time, countless internet articles and forums discussing how it works and most of all, how Curtis was there to help not only with any questions but to insure his customer met the result they expected before purchase. We placed an internet order for one gallon of Cactus Juice and a Vacuum gauge. The next day we had an email saying it was shipped, and then it arrived two days later. Our first group of pen blanks are now stabilized perfectly, we felt like a couple of pros after reading and watching all the information available on using Cactus Juice. The product itself is amazing and does exactly what I expected. The juice absorbed and hardened all the way through to the core of the blanks I stabilized. What an amazing product, our scrap wood bin just became our source for new and exotic pen blanks. Thank you Mr. Seebeck! Jimmy and Melissa, MJPens, Hermitage TN.

I would like to say that "Cactus Juice" is my #1 choice for my stabilizing resin. I have tried the others and I still remain loyal customer. Never a problem, shipping is fast and customer service is first class. Whatever your question or whatever you problem Curtis will always call or text you back. Thanks for a great product that I can count on to use in my blanks that need to be perfect.

I'm fairly new to pen turning and have about a year and a half of experience with this terrific craft! I have tried a lot of blanks out there and finally got the opportunity to turn some of Curtis' blanks. There truly is a difference! These blanks are a pleasure to turn. They turn easily, I've not had any of them blow out on me, the colors have so much depth and sparkle, and the patterns and designs of the wood are fantastic. Its quite obvious to see the quality of these when you look at them for the first time, and each subsequent order are just as fantastic as the first. I also purchased a stabilizing chamber and some cactus juice and I have to say its all high-quality materials and craftsmanship. It truly is as easy as his videos show! All the information he has provided, videos he has made to help everyone, plus the fact he provides his phone number and is willing to take calls from anyone, let alone emails, and help with any questions or problems you have; just shows the sort of standard and customer service that nobody else has. Highly recommend every product TurnTex has to offer, there is no way anyone could be disappointed or have anything negative to say. Thanks, Pat

I can't leave feedback on the product yet because I haven't gotten my vacuum chamber built yet but... The customer service and shipping were phenomenal and fast! Even with them being out of town they got me my package in just a couple of days. And if you're looking for product reviews I'm sure you can find nothing but great reviews of cactus juice. That's what led me to them to buy it. Great company guys , I look forward to doing business with you again soon.

After having a couple of different chambers I ordered one of the juice proof chambers. Now have two of these large and small size. By far superior to the others that I had purchased. Its nice to be able to see inside the chamber when it is running. I use cactus juice for my resin and have been very pleased. Penetrates to the center of the blanks when stabilized properly. Have now done 200 plus blanks saves money over buying blanks already stabilized and is a fun hobby.

I was very happy with the ording process and quick shipping from your company. Only issue I have is the Alumilite dye being to thick and not viscous enough to penetrate the wood when mixed in with the Cactus Juice resin. This may have been an operator error though. Thank you and keep up the good work!
