    I was wondering if there would be any interest in Vacuum chambers, basic units with base attached and a lid.
    Other fittings can all be sourced locally or found in some peoples assorted box.

    I've priced out 6" clear PVC and the PVC plastic for base and lids and just looking for a good soft "U-Channel" for the end of pipe seal. A flat rubber gasket will also work among others so likely go the easy clean route with a flat gasket of some sort.

    I was planning on a square base with 4 mounting holes
    simple top with 2 holes threaded for pipe fittings

    John, I have noticed reference on many occasions herein which referred to stabilized wood. Sorry to be so naïve here but is stabilized wood like pressure treated lumber? And what type of wood requires this process. I guess I could look this up on internet here, but thought I might get better info. direct from artisans that know and deal with this facet of knife and handle construction. ( Or, if more practical even a reference to such an answer ).

    Stabilized wood has the air spaced filled with a thermal set resin.
    Wood to soft for anything else can be made usable

    Turntex.com is the original developer and has lots of good information
