    I was just looking at Forestry Suppliers and saw a fascinating product, though I have no idea if it's color-stable - made for looking at wood core samples, and required 95% ethanol and 50% hydrochloric acid (as well as the stuff they are actually selling) but it's supposed to specifically dye the growth rings, which could be an interesting effect if it lasted...

    Ha , no those are the usual suspects but Thank you . I'm thinking something in Neon chartreuse :D I like your idea maybe it can be injected and vacuumed through or whatever process would pull it into the wood .

    You would have to start with a very light colored wood or it would dull the dye quite a bit.
