You didn't say what size blank. Pen blanks may be able to be stabilized because you aren't asking the chemical to penetrate very far. Remember you will be drilling out the middle. I thought you might be talking about stabilizing a bowl blank and I doubt that would work. However sometimes solutions like thinned lacquer thinner will penetrate very far into punky wood. It just won't do anything to solid wood more than maybe a few thousandths of an inch.
