CONESTOGA WORKS VACUUM CHAMBERS
Local wood can often be a treasure-trove for the woodworker or woodturner but oftentimes is rejected because it isn’t capable of being worked because it’s too soft, punky, or spalted. Our vacuum chambers will allow the woodworker to condition the normally unacceptable wood in a simple and safe manner to produce a high quality material that has outstanding machining properties. The process of using vacuum to infuse a heat cured plastic resin into the wood allows it to retain details normally only available in very dense exotic hardwoods that are very expensive and becoming difficult to find. By using local woods normally destined for the burn pile we are also fostering good ecological practices.
