Purpleheart is hard dense and heavy, it has high crushing stiffness and bending strength. It is difficult to work by hand and moderatly difficult to machine. the blunting effect on cutters in moderate to severe. It glues waxes and stains and polishes well and turns very well. Typical Uses: Furniture, Fine Turning, Pool Cues, Inlay and Marquerty
Possible Health Risks: dust can cause nasal irritation and nausea
My Thoughts: I have used Purpleheart several times as an accent color on projects, I think it turns nicely, it sands and finishes well. It stands out nicely when used with Ash, Wenge. I am sure I will continue to use it as I building things in the future.
