    Details

    African Padauk (Pterocarpus soyauxii) is a medium to hard wood, color can vary, ranging from a pale pinkish orange to a deep brownish red. Most pieces tend to start reddish orange when freshly cut, darkening substantially over time to a reddish/purplish brown. The grain is generally straight to slightly interlocked with a fine to medium texture. Padauk is easy to work, though it does have a moderate blunting effect on cutters. Tearout may also occur during planing on quartersawn or interlocked grain. A popular hardwood among hobbyist woodworkers because of its unique color, some common uses for Padauk include: cabinetry, furniture, veneer, interior paneling, flooring, turned objects, musical instruments, tool handles and other small specialty wood objects.

    Purple heart urn for blog

    The solemn occasion of a military funeral service is a time of great honor, dignity and respect for one who has served their country. Though a great deal of detail and tradition go into a veteran’s ceremony, one detail caught Idaho artist John Sword’s eye and he set out to change it. After experiencing his own personal losses and attending several inurnment ceremonies, he saw a need and started developing a concept for wooden ceremonial urns.
