Stabilization

Stabilization is done by taking piece of wood, usually Spalted or starting to rot, and saturating it with resin.  The wood is submerged in a bath of resin and then placed into a vacuum chamber.  A vacuum is applied which removes all the air from the pockets and crevices in the wood.  When the vacuum is released, the resin takes the place of the air in the wood and, after baking, makes a very stable and workable piece of wood.

Different hues and colors are possible by adding dyes to the resin.
