African Padauk - Pterocarpus macrocarpus

Burma Padauk

Botanical name: Pterocarpus macrocarpus

Origin: Burma
Weight: 900Kg/m3
Cutting: Two square edged boards 150mm wide and wider 1900mm long and longer.
Dryness: Kiln dried
Other names: Pradoo

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. I have not seen it traded in the UK within the scope of my 35 year tenure at Timberline.

CITES Update 2017

From 2nd January 2017 if you wish to export articles that are partly or fully made from newly listed species of Rosewood, Padauk and Bubinga then the export will need to be accompanied by a CITES re-export permit. It is possible that the importer/customer of the article may need to apply for a CITES import permit from their own authorities and this should be investigated before the export happens.
