African Padauk Lumber originates from massive trees in South America and in Africa. Some of these trees can be up to 24″ wide in their life time. The interesting thing about this wood is that the color is a pure bright orange color when first milled. Though, if left in direct sunlight, it will darken to a dark orange/brownish color over time. Like Purple Heart, it is meant for small accent strips, as it’s expensive and somewhat rare. Perfect for Cutting Boards.
We offer it in Cutting Board/Coaster Strips – Ready for glue up, and they are 1.25″ X 1.25″ X 18-20″ (14.49 Each), or we also offer it by the board foot, which would be $14.00/BDFT.
On our Orders by the board foot, it’s quoted to be rough. If you’d like it milled, choose “By the Board Foot, MILLED” for two flat faces and a straight edge.
