Product Description

Purple Heart is hard, dense and heavy with high crushing, stiffness and bending strengths, a moderate steam-bending rating and medium resistance to shock loads.

It is difficult to work by hand, and machining is moderately difficult. The blunting effect on cutters is moderate to severe. Slow feed rates and reduced cutting angle are advised. Blunt cutters will heat the wood and cause resin to exude.

It glues, waxes, stains and polishes well, turns very well, but is not easy to sand. Spirit finishes tend to remove the purple colour; lacquer retains it.

Please note, the image is an example of what you could create with Purpleheart wood.

Purpleheart wood blanks are available in squares, rounds and spindles. All sizes are listed in inches unless stated otherwise.
