True to its name, purpleheart boasts vibrant purple heartwood, and a fine, satiny texture. Initially a dull brown, it takes on its brilliant tone shortly after the wood is cut. The sapwood is creamy, pinkish cinnamon. It has exceptionally high bending and crushing strength, is dimensionally stable, and is extremely resistant to decay. All boards are machined S4S to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations, while the thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Alternate name: Peltogyne.Tree: Usually tall, with a height of about 100 to 150 feet and a diameter of up to 48 inches, usually between 18 and 36 inches.Heartwood: Initially dull brown, rapidly changing to a bright, vibrant purple.

A reduced cutting angle of 15 degrees is recommended, especially when planing and moulding material with interlocked or wavy grain. Nailing: The wood requires to be pre-bored, but nail-holding capabilities are reported to be good.Steam Bending: The wood steam bends fairly well.Strength Properties: Bending strength in the air-dry condition is very high, and crushing strength is exceptionally high.

T-tracks are renowned for their adjustability, and Bench Cookies for their versatility - now this simple kit allows you to combine the two for the ultimate in both! T-Track Risers slide conveniently into your T-track to provide a set of four elevated posts for your Bench Cookie Plus Work Grippers (sold separately, 46902). Not only do you get a no-slip, no-mar work surface that is fixed firmly in place, but the additional height creates space for saw blades and router bits beneath the workpiece. Simply spin the Bench Cookies and they tighten themselves down, then add a final cinch for good measure.
