Purple Heart Circular Discs
Peltogyne venosa. Air and kiln dried.
All dimensions shown are in inches (diameter x thickness).
Brazilian timber with distinct purple heartwood which shows brown when first cut before turning purple on exposure to light.
A hard timber with coarse interlocking grain, tough to turn but rewarding for the deep purple colour and high shine using cellulose and acrylic sealers and lacquers. Used a lot by turners of plums and grapes.
