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.

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.
