DETAILS
African Padauk, Pterocarpus soyauxii, is a unique open grained hardwood from Africa that has a bright Vermillion color when first cut. Over time it slowly ages to a purple Rosewood color. Huge logs are sometimes available, producing beautiful, large boards.

The lumber is kiln dried, surfaced on two sides and is 95% free of defects except for a minor rough edge or small surface check. The majority of these boards are quarter and rift sawn which produces a beautiful ribboned figure from interlocked grain.  Padauk is easy to mill, glue, and work.  It is ideal for boxes, cabinets, instruments, and other fine articles.  For making pens we suggest buying a 4-5” wide board and then angle cutting it at about a 45 degree angle to capture the color changes  This is related to Amboyna burl (Pterocarpus indicus) from SE Asia and has similar colors when worked. We have a very limited amount of this material. Please purchase quickly to ensure the very best selection possible.

Nice bacon figure. Rift sawn. There is some discoloration on one face but if the board is sanded then it will come right off.
