You'll Fall for this Purpleheart!
PurpleheartTurning10-3-17

A brilliantly colored hardwood from South America, Purpleheart is very popular for its deep purple color. Ideal for inlay, marquetry, and other fine articles. Occasionally the trees produce either fiddleback or a ropey mottled curl from interlocked grain. The color is a pale brown when freshly cut, darkening to deep violet purple with UV exposure in a few days. The wood has coarse open grain and is dense and durable, so much that it can be used for wharf pilings and truck floors. Kiln dried, S2S
