Does anyone here have experience building a pressure chamber for vacuum dying wood, specifically purflings? I have a good vacuum system. Thanks, Bob

I had done oak and ammonia but that was cabinet making days

I have used dye in a PVC pipe and let it set for a few days but didn't use a vacuum . I can see how that would pull the color . Schedule 40 pipe should be affordable and strong enough. Let us know what you do. Pix is good
