Every now and then we find a piece of wood so unique all work stops until we get a chance to play with our new treasure. This week: Purple Heart Juniper.
We received a trunk of juniper to create something and discovered a striking band of purple heart wood that ran through the entire sample.
We commissioned a local wood maestro, Designs by Tomas, to lathe samples into something that would show off the unique characteristics.The result is a stunning goblet and a matching bowl. The sample is finished in beeswax.
