    Help!

    I'm wanting to do a project that involves the use of some multi colored woods.Now i know i can find some like black and red, but where can i find solid blue? I don't need much but i do want solid blue. I thought about dye but as it will be turned it needs to be through the intire surface. Just so you get a idea think of a american flag as that is part of the design.The rest will be the twin towers.
    Thanks Steve

    Stephen, I don't know of any truly blue-colored woods, but I've seen dyed and stabilized pen blanks that were dyed blue, and the color penetrated the wood pretty well. I believe those are done with either air pressure or vacuum (or both).

    Here's an article I found via Google:
