Not sure if this is relevant but from my days in chemical pulping if you heat up the wood with steam (it has to be hotter than boiling water so a pressurized vessel) then add a cold solution of what you want to impregnate with, it’ll be pulled into the wood between the fibers. I can envision heating with a pressure cooker then, once it’s cooled down enough to open the cooker safely, pour a cold solution over the wood. A pressure cooker is an ideal size for pen blanks.
