Description

Purpleheart is a very recognizable species due to the bright purple coloring. It grows from Mexico through Southern Brazil. It should be noted that the bright purple color will fade to a darker brownish plum. To prolong the color this wood should be finished with a UV protectant and avoid exposure to direct sunlight. Working with Purpleheart can present some unique challenges: if the wood is heated with dull tools, or if cutter speeds are too high, Purpleheart will exude a gummy resin that can clog tools and complicate the machining process. Depending on the grain orientation, can be difficult to plane without tearout. Purpleheart also has a moderate dulling effect on cutters.
