Purpleheart Bowl Blank

Purpleheart Bowl Blank

We will provide you with a high quality turning blank in the dimensions of your choice. This blank has already been kiln dried and is ready to be "turned" into your next great project! We recommend using Honey Bee's Natural Wood Cream for a long lasting and food safe finish.

We can sometimes accommodate a larger blank than our standard sizes. Please email us for availability and a quote.

Dimensions may vary +/- 1/4" as we often prefer to lightly skip dress the turning blanks to reveal grain & colour. Some blanks may also come with waxed faces and ends.

Courtesy of The Wood Database:

When freshly cut the heartwood of Purpleheart is a dull grayish/purplish brown. Upon exposure the wood becomes a deeper eggplant purple. With further age and exposure to UV light, the wood becomes a dark brown with a hint of purple. This color-shift can be slowed and minimized by using a UV inhibiting finish on the wood.

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.
