Photo is of typical piece.
Rich deep red, dense and with a fine texture and subtle figure that shows best on slab sawn faces. It is this and the Andaman specie that made padauk a valued and desirable timber. This stock is a rare survival. It was bought from a gentleman that came by it as old stock in the mid 1950’s. The actual age of it is impossible to say.
