Hi all, I am trying to design a candle holder with various coloured woods. I was wondering whether there is a possibilty of dyeing woods with different colors, gluing them to form a blank and then turning them? Will the dye penetrate deep into the wood, so that when turned the dyed wood will be visible? Many thanks

No, the dye molecules won't penetrate very deep as compared how deeply your tools are going to cut.

Do a search on Spectraply. Lots of colors to choose from that are dyed all the way through. Turns very good as well.
