Purpleheart (Peltogyne spp.) is a medium to hardwood with tight, fairly straight grain and 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. Turns and finishes well. The thinner boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations, while the thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides and fine jewelry boxes.

Woodcraft replaced damaged board.
Wood wea not consistant in color and the second in order was not only bowed but was cracked on one end. Crack was just short of 5 inches and went completely through wood. Called about sending back but was told that piece would be replaced. Three days later a good replacement arrived. Maybe I should give 5 star? But rated this on initial shipment.
These will be used mixed with other woods for a display table for behind the couch ( can't remember what they are called. I like all wood...and metal
Each piece is cut as measured and edges are true, straight and square. Thanks. Being used for a pair of octagonal speaker enclosures for a high end full range 7 inch speakers. This wood was chosen not only for it's density but also its colour.
