Purpleheart Thin

Purpleheart wood for woodworking!

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.

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

Quick and Timely shipping

I found this site online during a search for purpleheart wood. I have a few friends that have a Purpleheart. So, I thought a shadow box for their medals made in Purple heart wood would look great. And it did. The shipping was on time and customer service was great. I would recommend getting hard to find wood form KJP Select Hardwoods.
