... wood priced in Canadian Dollars ...................
Paduak is an amazing bright orange wood from South Africa. With age and light it's colour does darken, to a beautiful burnt umber colour,so it is a great wood to use in intarsia projects, but you must allow for the colour shift, and/or use a UV protectant.
The wood is moderately dense, much like red oak to work with. It has an open pore, cuts easily but has a coarse texture, so can splinter off when routing if you're not being careful. Never had much trouble with it twisting.
Very directional when planing. It sands easily. Must use a pore filler if you are looking for that glass like finish.
