Default Purpleheart is deep purple and beautiful

Here is a quick photo from a phone. The ribbon is used to hold item information, care instructions and the price. Better in person.



It was brown like walnut/cherry mixed together before sun treatment. I've used this a few times and seen it happen often to fishing lures trolled in the sun behind the boat. The purpleheart gets more purple, for a while... Everything colorful goes brown after time.

That is a beautiful cutting board. It looks amazing. I love what happened with the purple heart after a little time in the sun.

I use a sanding block made of cork and burnish on the lathe while it is spinning. You can control the shade that you get by the amount of pressure and time spent. I have had it turn violet and the same color as grape jelly.
