What is Stabilized wood?
The basic principle of wood stabilizing is to take a piece of soft or punky wood (punky wood is wood affected by serpula lacrymans fungus which creates a lot of interesting textures) and inject it with resin to create a stable, hardened wood blank that is safe to turn. The resin displaces air pockets throughout the grain structure, creating a dense blank that is nearly impervious to moisture changes and can be polished to a high gloss.
