Specie Latin: Pterocarpus soyauxii

Padauk 4/4 Flat & Q/Sawn

Specie Description: Padauk is an exotic wood from central and west Africa. It is a bright orange or almost crimson wood when freshly cut, but oxidizes to a darker, rich purple-brown over time - although it stays redder than Indian Rosewood.

Hard, heavy, and strong with exceptional decay resistance and dimensional stability. Works well with hand and machine tools. Glues easily and holds nails and screws well. Finishes to a beautiful sheen without the need for stain.

Excellent turning wood - used for fancy turnery such as knife and tool handles. Also prized for high end cabinets, furniture, carving, veneer, inlay, flooring, and boat building.

These boards are surfaced to 15/16" or 1 15/16". They are also cut on the sides.

Shipping Note for Padauk:

The max length that FedEx will ship is 60 inches at the rate shown in the shopping cart.

I can ship up to 9 feet but this will cost more. So if you need pieces that long, call to get shipping cost adder.

Shipping one board over 9 foot will add at least 100 dollars because it now must ship by truck.
