Padouk is also known as 'bar wood', probably because it is moisture resistant and can take a beating. Woodworkers absolutely love padauk as it is hard yet relatively easy to work with. Due to its wear-resistant character, padouk is often used for floors.
It has a characteristic grain structure, the black grain contrasts very nicely with the deep red color. The red color can even darken to purplish brown. Furthermore, the grain is straight or wavy.
Padouk is known as the fastest discolouring type of wood, it will turn to a silver-grey color in the foreseeable future.
Please note: the grain structure remains visible.
Regardless of what you would expect from a wood that appears to have a coarse cross grained grain, padauk is much easier and more pleasant to use.
It is therefore popular and is therefore exploited. Padouk can easily be designed and sawing joints also works well. In addition, it absorbs nails, screws and glue well for a good assembly and an excellent finish.
Given its extreme stability, it is almost a challenge to make something wrong with this.
The price of padouk depends on the desired size. For example, small slats are a lot cheaper than heavy sizes. Are you interested in the price of padouk? Request a quote without obligation. Padouk is not registered as vulnerable.
