Ok, let me be completely honest here, I don't normally leave feedback, reviews, etc... unless there is something I want others to know. There is one exception to that though, and that is small businesses. I have had my own home based business so I am more than willing to help out others when I can. So I hope this helps.
Anyway... I have heard of this cactus juice for some time now and just recently finished making my vacuum chamber for it (which is not hard, but if you make your own please be aware of the massive stresses that the container has to deal with, copy someone else's design don't come up with your own), so I ordered a bottle of this "juice". The first thing I tried in the "juice" was a small (3-4" cube) piece of maple that was a bit overly spalted (between punky and rotten). I was not expecting much since the wood was pretty sad, but I wanted to know just how far this "juice" could go in stabilizing a piece of wood.
I followed all the directions and filled the container to about 1 inch over the piece, weighed it down with a huge socket, pulled vacuum on it and watched as it boiled and frothed and made the most bizarre bubble formations I have ever seen. It took about two hours before all the bubbles stopped, I released the vacuum and let it sit for a few hours while I went around with the family. When I came back I popped it into a toaster oven I modified with an electronic temperature regulator for a few hours. When I pulled it out, I was rather disappointed because the "juice" that had leaked out was soft and squishy under the aluminum foil. I still went ahead and unwrapped it and let it finish cooling hoping that it would harden once it cooled.
It did and that piece of semi-interesting wood was now something that I could use! It was harder than a solid piece of maple! The "juice" worked! This stuff was amazing. It smells like the strangest bad smell that has ever crept into my nostrils, it's not a disgusting smell just a really odd, bad smell. But for what it did to that piece of ... junk wood, I am sold. I expected it to harden the wood up but I did not figure it would actually fill all the pores and tiny voids, I never expected it to fill voids any larger than a needle, it is only stabilizing wood not magically rebuilding it, for that you would need magic jell.
I am sold on this stuff. All the hype and all the praise that I have heard over the past year or so, is very well deserved. Great job on this stuff Curtis!
