You are purchasing a piece of exotic Purpleheart - this size in particular is perfect for using to turn the hanging ornaments/baubles I have enjoyed turning and demonstrating for the past few years. It can also be cut down for using as pen blanks.


Purpleheart is a naturally purple timber. However, on turning it, the timber will turn brown and need to be exposed to UV/sunlight for a short amount of time in order to allow it to become purple once again. In time though, it will darken to a mohogany-type brown colour - especially if kept in direct sunlight.


The timber has been kiln dried and planed on each face down to 2 inches square - there may be a slight amount of tolerance, but this would be minimal and very unusual for the pieces to be less than 2 inches square.


The timber your will receive will be very similar but not exactly the same piece as shown in the photograph (every single piece of timber is unique and would take far too much time to photograph individually for resale).


The kit includes:

1 × 2" x 2" x 9" Purpleheart spindle blank



I quality check every piece of timber prior to posting, and therefore there are a few considerations I would like to bring to your attention:

  • Timber is a NATURAL product which can have cracks and inclusions hidden within the grain and within the wood itself which I cannot be held responsible for
  • Wood can warp and crack if stored incorrectly - again I cannot be held responsible if your timber moves and/or cracks prior to you turning it OR AFTER you have turned and finished it
  • If your timber is cracked ON ARRIVAL, please contact me within 24 HOURS with photographs to see if something can be sorted out


Standard postage is £3.75 second class via Royal Mail.


Happy turning!!
