Woodturning a Purpleheart Spinning Top
Today we’re woodturning a piece of purpleheart wood into a beautiful spinning top. Purpleheart, known for its unusual yet stunning purple hue, is actually a medium brown color when freshly cut but then oxidizes to a deep purple color over time.
Used in furniture making, picture frames, jewelry boxes, and more, purpleheart wood is a very strong and durable wood. Please continue below to see how we turn a block of purpleheart wood into a gorgeous heirloom quality spinning top.
