Purpleheart Wood Slabs

Perhaps one of the most popular exotic woods, Purpleheart has been used in almost any wood working project. It’s popular with tables, cutting boards, guitars, drawers, or as veneer. The appeal of Purpleheart comes from its purple color; it’s unusual because it’s not a common color among natural products.

Purpleheart has a great natural luster that really highlights the straight and wavy grain. It’s mostly straight grain does help with cutting and drilling tools however, its resin has to be taken into account. Using cutters or machines at high speeds will exude resin that can clog machines, so taking your time with tools is the best approach.

Using Purpleheart as slabs brings out the most amazing grain patterns and colors of the species making it a fantastic option for tables or even decorative wall art.
