Purpleheart Peltogyne paniculata
Purpleheart is also know as Violetwood. This violet colored wood is an extremely dense hardwood that requires sharp tools and patience, but the results can be stunning. This oily wood holds an oil base finish very well. To fully protect the bright color apply a color stabilizer. It’s easy to mix and easy to apply and it will maintain the purple color.
Typical Uses: Bridges, abutments, fine furniture and floors.
Source Region: Central and South America
