    Comments about Purpleheart 3/4" x 6" x 36" :

    I use Purple heart and other woods like it as accent pieces or specialty projects. Purpleheart is very very hard and chips easy when trying to carve it even with power carving tools. When finished it is beautiful and draws lots and lots of comments.
