Details

African Padauk (Pterocarpus soyauxii) is a 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. The grain is generally straight to slightly interlocked with a fine to medium texture. 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. A popular hardwood among hobbyist woodworkers because of its unique color. Slab measures 1-1/4" x 24" x 48" and has been surfaced on both sides.

Features:
  • Unique reddish orange color
  • Excellent choice for outdoor use due to being highly resistant to decay and insect attack
  • Glues, turns & finishes well (accepts both oil and water-based finishes)
  • Native to Central and tropical West Africa
  • Slab has been surfaced on two sides
Specifications:
  • Thickness: 1-1/4"

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.
