Details

African Padauk (Pterocarpus soyauxii) is native to central and tropical West Africa. Color of this medium to hard wood 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. Tear-out 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. Stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. 100% clear and sanded on both sides.

Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
