Beautiful work!! In my experience with purpleheart, you will always get some burning of sorts. I am not the best scroll saw producer in the world, but as a box maker (among others) I enjoy the look and the hardness of the species, but hate the burning. Sharp tools, not so sharp tools-fast feed rate, slow feed rate etc., just prepare for some sanding or scraping. Keep up the good work. You have waaaaay more patience and better eyes than I.
