Making laminated pen blanks question.

One more question for tonight, I want to make some laminated pen blanks for my buddies at work. I want to dye some maple blue and laminate it between to pieces of wood. How deep does the dye go? Will I turn the dyed portion off when I make the pen? If this is the case, what are your thoughts on laminating wood with a acrylic in the middle? Epoxy would bind the two diffferent materials wouldn't it? Thanks again,

Adam

That's a real good question Adam! I have used a fair amount of dyed woods and the color does go all throughout the wood. Maybe it would be easiest just to purchase a piece of blue dyed box elder, buckeye or maple blanks and then laminate it with the other wood(s) you plan to use.

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. James 3:17

I believe IAP has several tutorials on this process.
