Do y'all think that putting glue or epoxy on some balsa, then putting it in a pressure vessel will make balsa stronger? I think if I did it with CA glue it would become a brittle rock. However, if I used a more flexible wood glue or epoxy it might add strength without becoming brittle. Of course, the trade-off is the added weight.

I'm just playing with some ideas and looking for your thoughts on this.
