Here’s some quick info on Padauk in case you can’t wait to get your hands on it like me! Pterocarpus is an exotic hardwood with a Janka of 1970. It works extremely well with power or hand tools + glues & screws easily.  Padauk can range in color from pale pink to deep red. I love the warm orange tones in between! It darkens to a reddish brown over time (UV inhibitors MAY prolong darkening) & has fairly straight grain. It is very durable, resistant to bugs, and is said to have a faint pleasant smell when being worked… just one more reason I can’t wait to pick some up! Oh, that reminds me!! Advantage Lumber is having a garage sale this Saturday June 20th from 8am to 4pm at it’s Buffalo, NY / Grover, NC / Sarasota, FL / Los Angeles, CA locations!! Yipppeeee!!! I’m bringin’ my checkbook! ;D
