Stabilized wood mods are getting quite the buzz. These amazing pieces of wood made into mods are such beauties that people will die just to get a piece of it. These colorful pieces of wood are definitely worth the hype, but is it worth the money?

What is stabilized wood?

Basically, the term stabilized means that the would wouldn’t shrink, swell, expand, absorb water, crack, or whatever happens when wood ages. Wood is stabilized to prevent the rotting process and keep it preserved overtime.

How is Wood Stabilized?

If the definition was that simple, then why is it damn expensive? First off, we should know how wood is stabilized:

  1. Wood is dried to a moisture content of below 10% to prevent further rotting.
  2. Wood is dipped into a stabilizing solution.
  3. Everything will be placed in a vacuum chamber.
  4. The wood is moved into a high pressure chamber to ensure that the stabilizing solution penetrates the wood.
  5. The next process will be heat curing to solidify the liquid and finally stabilize the wood.

The process might look easy, but it isn’t easy and it isn’t cheap. Stabilizing wood requires a lot of mastery and a load of equipment. Seriously, if it was that easy, everyone would be making a living out of making stabwood.

Stabilized wood mods also are unique, since no 2 pieces of wood would likely have the same burl patterns. Even if a company releases a million stab wood mods, there will never be a pair that would look exactly the same. Being unique comes with a price.

Also, stabilized wood mods are made by popular names like Vicious Ant, so you would expect the prices to go up a bit. Oh, did I mention that Vicious Ant has the record of making the world’s most expensive box mod to date?

If it’s better, should I get it?

If you have the budget, then yes. You must however, take into account that mods are released as frequently as Samuel L. Jackson swears. Ask yourself if you really want it, if you can afford it, and if you would like to pass on opportunities to purchase other mods because you already spent a fortune on that one mod that you have.

Being “in” is cool, but being dead broke isn’t. So before making that purchase, make sure that you take a deep thought. You can buy a whole lot of mods and e-liquid with that money.

If you don’t have the budget but want something unique, try a resin mod instead. Most resin mods today come with intricate patterns as well.
