I'd be careful doing it yourself, you want it to be thorough. I just bought some stabilized Maple on Ebay, recommended source, the fellow that was going to make me knife handles told me it was poorly stabilized, gave him some headaches.

I e-mailed with Ankrom Exotics looking for the Maple buy he didn't have any, offered to stabilize any I needed done. Patrick is the son of well known knifemaker Bill Ankrom. Might be worth contacting him.

I’ve tried it myself, tried a lot of other sources. The best I’ve found is K&G, I wasted quite a bit of wood getting there too.

K&G has a good reputation. I need to ship them a batch of maple burl to stabilize and maybe even dye.

I have been doing some stabilizing with some black walnut, maple burl and spalted maple, and a few other pieces of a mountain of pieces I have left over. It isn't overly difficult, but it does take the proper equipment to get it right...
I could possibly do it for you but I need to restock my stabilizing resin as I'm running a bit low on it right now...

If you are on facebook, there is a wood stabilizing group there that is extremely helpful ...
