Color: Purpleheart is a dull grayish/purplish brown when first cut but it quickly darkens to a violet purple with exposure to light. With continued exposure to UV light it will continue to darken over time to dark brown with a hint of purple.
General Workability: Very hard with a moderate blunting effect on cutters. Sometimes problematic to glue due to natural oils present in the wood. Purpleheart is a bit brittle and can split or crack if not pre-drilled when nailing or screwing. But finishes with a wonderful lustrous surface. Good for woodturning.
Project Ready? These thin wood sheets (previously called "Scroll Saw Ready" hardwoods) are perfect for scroll sawing, laser cutting and engraving, thick veneers, and much more.
Our Project Ready Purpleheart boards are kiln dried and surfaced and sanded to 150 grit on two sides.
