Purpleheart (Pltogyne densiflora)



Heartwood is a deep purple-violet when freshly cut, maturing to a dark brown. The original color is restored when re-cut. Grain is straight, but often irregular, wavy & sometimes interlocked. Texture is moderate to fine. Difficult to work. Recommend running material slowly through machines. Pre-drilling needed for nailing. Takes glue well; stains & wax polishes easily.
