Default Stabilization and casting

I'm looking at getting into doing my own stabilization. I'd also like to get into casting PR and or alumilite.

I don't see why the same chamber couldn't be used for both. Is that something that could be done? Anyone have any recommendations on what would be best to get?

You don't need a chamber if you cast with PR. Here's a good article from the library that will get you started. If you want to cast with Alumilite, than this article is a good starting reference. Turntex Woodworks has some good articles on casting with Alumilite also. For stabilizing, you will need a chamber that will allow you to see the wood you are stabilizing. For stabilization info, check out these articles from Turntex Woodworks.
