Paduak

Latin: Pterocarpus soyauxii Origin: Tropical West Africa

Paduak is a moderately priced exotic wood that is easy to work with. The bright orangish-red coloring make it perfect for intarsia work and segmented projects like cutting boards and turned items. 

It is very stable and finishes well but needs to be sealed with a UV protectant finish to try and prolong the bright color from darkening. Finding a curly figured piece like the one pictured is fairly rare.
