Another interesting reading about chemicals and wood. Anyone know if the wood is usually treated when making a violin or just dried?

In trying to read as many old Forum posts as possible (hoping to eventually read them all, ha), I noticed the link given here is no longer working. But I'd read that same article some time back, and it refers to the researcher, Joseph Nagyvary, who is now retired from Texas A&M University (tamu) but still carries on his violin research on his own. http://www.nagyvaryviolins.com/
As far as I know, no one else normally soaks wood in chemicals before building a violin with it.
