My experience has been that if you are using a dull blade or otherwise “burning” the wood, it turns black. After I initially cut it, it would be light purple if it didn’t burn. After a few days, the color would deepen and it would return to a nice deep “merlot” color. That should be it’s natural look.

If you have used a stain or sealer then your results are going to be dependent on the color of the product and whether the wood can breath.

I’m probably wrong on that but that’s what I think…
