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.

In order to offer more protective packing for shipping - our lengths are often 1/4" less than sizes listed. Need a wider width or longer length? Please email us for a quote. Custom millwork charges will apply.

We will provide you with a 1/4" thick x 3" wide or 4-3/4" wide x 24" long, high quality thin board! These boards are flat, straight, and ready for sanding.

Beautiful wood!

It has been a great experience working with purple heart. All it one of my pieces were laminated purple heart and maple. I knew it was hard but didn't expect it to be quite so dense and hard as it was. That made the hand sanding lot of fun (note of sarcasm). But I enjoy the entire shaping process I only wish there was a place to display the work on the website.
