The wood is great quality, and was cut great. I used the purple heartwood turning blocks to make legs for a foot stool to match my cigar chair. Great customer service, too. And the shipping was fast. My new favorite place to buy wood. Thank you!

Purple Heart Furniture Squares
This is a great product. I was considering making legs for my table from 3/4" flat pieces by mitering two pieces to create 2x2 L Shape legs. - but I am glad I ordered these pre-cut 1-3/4 square instead. They are much stronger and easier to work with. I am really enjoying working with Purple heart. It is a very hard wood. But it's easy to work with. It cuts very cleanly, although I amy have to get a new blade after I am done with this project, as the wood burns / smokes when it is cut and leaves a black mark on both the wood and the saw. I was surprised how easy to use screws to fasten the pieces together, after drilling a pilot hole of course. I can hardly wait to finish my custom side table and share the picture.
