I have been dyeing some of the wood I have before stabilizing it and it is turning out real good. I just went out to the shop and ground the biggest block I had and ground right past the center. I am getting full penetration through the middle. I sanded it down to 1000 grit and put 1 coat of boiled linseed oil on it. Looks really good. Jim I'm not sure how to post pictures. I will send a copy to Cal and ask him to download the pics.
