African padauk (pterocarpus soyauxii) central and tropical west Africa. 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. 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. Padauk turns, glues, and finishes well. It’s a popular hardwood among hobbyist woodworkers because of its unique color. Some common uses for Padauk include: veneer, flooring, turned objects, musical instruments, furniture, tool handles, and other small specialty wood objects. Micro-thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. 100% clear and sanded on both sides.

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.
