Appearance

Purpleheart is a colour shifter to be sure. When freshly cut, it’s a greyish, purply brown colour but after some time it becomes the eggplant colour we all recognize. Further exposure to UV turns it dark brown with a hint of purple.

Workability

Not known for its easy workability, Purpleheart can dull tools moderately and can become gummy if cutters are dull or causing too much heat.

Uses

Inlays and accent pieces are great uses for Purpleheart. It can also be used for flooring, furniture, flooring, and boatbuilding.

Additional Comments

Like many bright coloured woods, a little goes a long way. A splash of colour can add a tremendous design statement.
