Customer Comments

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.

Curtis has been great to work with, He's been there with answers when needed and with Cactus juice I've gotten quality, consistent, repeatable results at a reasonable price. Also great to work with on chambers as well!

I received the order promptly and look forward to stabilizing some beautiful oak burl that will be used for goose calls and finials for the hollow forms that I turn on my lathe. Thank you for the great service!

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!

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!

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.
