....using that highly dangerous, explosive, and toxic chemical. Homeland Security might also be interested in your intended use....
Back in the day, before pigmented stains became universally dominant, craftspeople used all kinds of chemicals to color wood, some which were astonishingly toxic and which would today throw the authorities into a state of panic
many years ago, a popular staining process for pine, common especially in the restoration business and especially for pine floors, was a mixture of dissolved potassium permanganate crystals with some denatured alcohol. You just mopped it on and the floor would instantly turn bright purple, but which after about a minute would transform into the most lovely honey brown.
Some chemical combinations would involve two applications of different chemical solutions, the second, called a mordent, activating the first to give the color desired, and these processes were universal in all kinds of woodworking, from furniture to architectural work, until the early 20th century.
Very effective, and in most cases much more color-fast than any pigments, many of which tend to be fugitive with light exposure.
And since it was a chemical reaction wherein the color intensity is not proportional to the absorption rate, the process was free of the blotchy outcomes which often require pre-treatments to control with pigmented stains.
Back in the 70's and 80's you could buy all kinds of bulk chemicals for that purpose. I remember on a project down in Texas in the early 80's buying a 50 lb sack of potassium permanganate from a walk-in counter at a supply house in Houston, tossing it in the back of the truck, and driving off.
nowadays and you'll have a SWAT team on your lawn in no time flat.
But anyway, as for drying as a woodturner, I'm with Bill.
Except for specialty applications (super thin turnings in green wood, say) there is nothing to be gained by speeding the process up and much to be gained by slowing it down. Much better to sequence one's woodturning in such a way that there is never a need to dry anything in a hurry.
Accelerated drying, and I include kiln-drying in this remark, almost always degrades either the working quality or the appearance of the wood.
Often both, and sometimes profoundly so.
