Picture of Wood Turning a BEAUTIFUL Purpleheart Pen!!!

In this Instructable I am turning a beautiful pen out of Purpleheart. Purpleheart is a naturally purple wood, and is taken from tropical rainforests in South-America, Mexico, and Brazil. It sure makes beautiful pens!

Step 1: Rough Turning

Now we can turn the square blank in to a round cylinder with the gouge.

That is such a beautiful pen! And I agree that it was neat to learn about how you bring the purple color out :)
Thanks! It really never gets old watching the purple come back!
