Looking forward to the final results. Don't forget to share on AK.
Crox has been great. I really like the profile of the knob he turned. However the color of the wood did not cooperate. Purple Heart is a fickle beast that way. I've seen it start Purple then over the years turn brown. I bought the first chunks from Bell Forrest. That's what's in the pictures. The chunks looked old and when I planed an edge it was brownish. I called them and they said it oxidizes and turns purple over time. Hmmm. I thought they were the Omaha Steaks of wood. It didn't make sense to return it so I sent it to Crox.
After looking at the results I picked up some 8/4 chunks from my local supplier. You can see what the color looks like. It does change based on the direction of the light. Love to hear
others experiences with Purple Heart and color.
