Ive been experimenting with stabilizing and dyeing Advan Tech plywood,then turning bottle toppers and pens. I use Cactus Juice sold by Turn Tex. Its a heat activated stabilizing resin that penetrates deep in to the plywood. I put the blanks in a vacuum chamber with the resin and dye,pull a vacuum for a wile then let them soak and off to the toaster oven. If you do a search on Cactus Juice there are a bunch of great You Tube videos on this process.
