We have brought together a selection of turning blanks that will surely get the creative juices of any turner really flowing. The turning pack includes 3" x 3" x 12", 3" x 5" x 5" and 2-1/2" x 6" x 6" blanks.

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.
