Purpleheart (Peltogyne spp) 1-1/2" X 1-1/2" X 24" wood turning stock is a medium to hardwood with tight, fairly straight grain, and a moderate to coarse texture. Bright purple when cut, it darkens to a deep purplish brown. Purpleheart is a very strong wood that machines well with sharp tools. Purpleheart turns and finishes well and is an ideal choice for pens, knife scales, and bottle stoppers. Boards are surfaced four sides. Origin: Central and South America.

Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
