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!

Thanks for the quick service and delivery. Even with a shipping glitch it arrived pretty quickly. Thanks for the information and advice on my set up. Had a few problems at first but I think the last couple of batches have come out excellent. Thanks

I have used Curtis's system for almost 3 years and love it! The stabilizing system works just as he describes it and the results are great! His shipping is fast; he is available for questions, and his products are first class. Members in my turning club have seen the results I get when I stabilize previously unusable wood for my pens and now have started asking me to stabilize things for them. Thanks Curtis!

The product really does work and makes the use of woods that normally could not be turned usable. Curtis is one of those rare breeds - he actually believes in and practices customer service and satisfaction. He is the man to go to when you need help with any stabilization questions or products.

Turn Tex is a great company to do business with. Curtis is always happy to talk to you and offer advice. When I sent him a question about vacuum pumps he answered my email in less then 45 minutes. His tanks are well made at a fair price and Cactus Juice is very easy to work with. If you plan on trying to stabilize wood this is the company to deal with.

I perform my first stabilization with Cactus Juice and I'm very pleased. First time was with no problems. I was stabilizing a Hickory bowl that was a little punky. It finish well and I will be using coloring stabilizer on my next use of Cactus Juice with Cedar tooth pick holder.

I was quite impressed with Curtis and his products. He is one of the few suppliers who takes the time to answer every question presented to him. I ordered Cactus Juice from him but haven't used it yet so I can't honestly report on that product yet. I can comment on Curtis's devotion to the customer, which I would rate 10 out of 10.

I continue to learn the art of stabilizing wood. The Cactus Juice is a great product. I think the price is fair. It is easy to understand. I begin my next step by going from straight to tinted Juice.

I'm a newby to small project turning interested in turning pens as gifts. I acquired several pieces of burl wood and had issues drilling and turning the wood due to the punky and softness. After researching stabilizing i ended up ordering cactus juice to try out in my vacuum chamber. This stuff is AMAZING!! drilled and turned like butter! the finish was so smooth that i started the sanding with 500 grit. I never tried anything else to stabilize but no need as this is my go to juice now!! HOOYAH! Tom

I have used Cactus Juice for around a year. The first gallon I used was more learning how to use the system than actually stabilizing anything. I'm on gallon two, and I love the stuff! The new vertical tank works wonderfully. Anyone looking at wanting to stabilize their own materials, this would be a great system to use.

Ordered and received Alumilite dyes, very strong colors compared to other retail outlets, gives great coloring when double dying blanks. Shipping was fast as I had work waiting for the dying.. Talked with Curtis about needing Activator to "recharge" older Juice I hadn't used up, he was very easy to work with, and took all steps needed to make sure I understood everything about the "re-charging". Curtis is so easy to work with, his shipments always arrive before anyone elses.... Would definitely order straight from this site before I buy same thing from a 3rd party vendor.

We received our order for a stabilizing tank and fittings, resin, and color. We have run through several batches of pen blanks and have been pleased with the results. Each new batch helps us learn a little more about different woods and how they respond to the resin. Thanks for being prompt in the delivery of the equipment. We look forward to doing business with you in the future. Mark Hutchings
