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.


Features:
  • Bright purple when cut, it darkens to a deep purplish brown
  • Terrific choice for specialty wood items including pens, knife scales and bottle stoppers
  • Dimensionally stable hardwood with fairly straight grain
  • Works to a medium to high luster
  • Native to Central and South America

    Wonderful Wood

    Other reviews have not rated this so high, and I understand why. Purpleheart is an EXTREMELY dense and water resilient wood. Thus if it is allowed to sit untreated (bees wax, or any other coating) it will start to crack. With that said, I have purchased over 20 pieces in varying lengths from woodcraft and have not ONCE received a board that was anything but incredible. 100% recommend them for all your PH needs.
