You could scroll saw the letters in the blank and then fill with tinted epoxy. If you cut the blank in half first and then cut the initials they won't show backwards on the opposite side and then glue the blank back together before filling. I have done this several times and it works pretty good.

Have you thought about laser engraving with an epoxy inlay?

Here is a pen I did in Ebony with a white epoxy inlay.

^ Nice!
Ok, first of all; I'm not 100% in love with your tone right now.

That would be a pretty tight inlay. I would agree with the laser and fill it in.
