Looks great. I have some purple heart in the stash but have not yet worked out how to feature it. This looks a bit like a military uniform ... very neat and tidy lines, classy.

Purple Heart is one of my favorite feature timbers. Great for accents etc. Can be a sod to work sometimes, splinters easily, hard on tools, but worth it in the end.
"Military Uniform", I quite like that. :)
