  • Remember that Purple Heart...

    That oxidized while under a pile of wood? Well, I put it back on the table under that same pile of wood and it’s been there since. When I picked it up today, this what I found, the color returned!! go figure!!

    Purpleheart seems to be funny that way. I've read anecdotal stories of it turning brown in the absence of UV light and/or when exposed to UV light. Some folks have had luck getting the purple color back after it turned brown and in other cases, the wood stayed brown. I have a piece of PH in my shop. It's been there for several years and is just as purple as the day I bought it. Go figure.

      Bruce uses strips of it in cutting boards and still purple. I use the cutting board all the time.

        I've used it in cutting boards, but it turns dark brown, as soon as I put mineral oil on it.

          It is amazing how Edward R. Murrow's life could would have been different it is wasn't for this one event.
