Very nice,  better than most I've seen.     If you are experienced with Purple Heart you already know but if not....    the purple color will fade to brown quickly without UV protection.    Linseed oil won't keep it from changing colors.   Polyurethane with UV block or Spar-Var will help keep the nice color of the wood.

Friend of ours has a laser.  Don't know if she's done brass or not.
