Details

African Padauk (Pterocarpus soyauxii) is native to central and tropical West Africa. The color of this medium to hard wood can vary, ranging from a pale pinkish-orange to a deep brownish-red. Most pieces start reddish-orange when freshly cut, darkening substantially over time to a reddish-purplish brown. It's a popular hardwood among hobbyist woodworkers because of its unique color.

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. Some common uses for Padauk include veneer, flooring, turned objects, musical instruments, furniture, tool handles, and other small specialty wood objects.

S2S (surfaced on two sides) lumber is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. 100% clear and planed on both sides. Edges are rough and will need to be milled.

Notes:

  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
  • 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.
