Dyeing wood

Getting dye to penetrate deeply is a pretty difficult task. Kyle Toth sometimes dyes poplar veneer to a solid black, through and through, but says it takes days of soaking the veneer in a bucket of dye. I can't imagine solid wood doing well. Perhaps it might, if you used a fairly porous species, and a vacuum pot to infuse it, like when stabilizing pieces for turning.
