So i put some tung oil on a scrap piece. I put it on heavy. Came back an hour later and wiped the excess with a white cloth and there was no bleed.

Since i like tung oil i will likely use it, then come over the top of that with something compatible and that has UV inhibitors.

Iím willing to be talked out of that, however, with some sound reasoning.

I have taken a purple heart unfinished board that was kind of Blah and set it out in the hot sun for a day and it really turned purple. Once it is finish it slowly darkens to where it is almost black.

Good to know, Herb! I knew UV was a factor but wasn't clear on which direction the colour change would happen.

Congratulations on a wonderful job. Any chance of a few progress shots? I don't know about outdoors but Iv'e made pens out of Purple heart and finished as shown. The last one though was finished with CA glue for an ultra high shine.

Sure thing! Still looks the same, just shinier! Lol. Next time I'm on my phone instead of iPad I'll post a pic.

I've already started a new inlay project. Won't be too long till it's done. And planning to try to do a small keepsake box next. I've never done a box before.

It came out well, but I've learned a lot from that purple heart sign and will share the lessons soon to hopefully get input and advice.
