Details

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. Dimensions are +- 1/8" grain runs with the longest dimension.

  • Unique reddish orange color

    Easily worked

    Wood had fantastic color and grain. Worked well. Pieces received were flat, but rough cut on the sides. Plan on loosing a little width to clean up edges. Will use again.

    Bad piece of padauk

    The very expensive piece of Padauk had a huge white strip of wood down the side. I realize wood varies, but for the premium I paid, I expected a quality piece of wood. That is exactly what I was afraid of, I don't think I would buy online again. Everything else was fine.
