  • Figured purpleheart refers to an irregular grain pattern in the growth rings, which creates a three-dimensional effect that appears as if the grain has “curled” along the length of the board.
  • Dimensional boards are cut from premium kiln dried lumber and surfaced on 2 sides.
  • Sapwood is not considered a defect and may be found in some boards.
  • Due to the nature of wood, no two pieces are alike, and movement, shrinkage or expansion can occur.
  • Pictures are representations.
  • Dimensions may vary +/- ⅛"
  • Wood dust has been known to cause allergic reactions among wood workers, therefore sufficient ventilation, dust extraction equipment, and the use of proper respirators and eye protection is essential.
