I have not made my CBG yet but I have been making custom knives for years. When I want to use a softer material for the handle I stabilize it. You can do this in a vacuum chamber of your own design. Stick your bone in a small jar, fill it with Thompson's water seal, or another similar agent, draw a vacuum on it and that will pull the sealant into the done. Let it dry for a week and it will be denser and harder. Just a thought???
