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.

COVID 19 UPDATE

We are closed to personal callers. Please shop with us over the phone, by email or through our online shop. The online shop at shop.exotichardwoods.co.uk is fully functional for mail order with thousands of items available from stock for immediate dispatch.

We recognise that the process of self-selection is by far the best way to buy and sell wood. Unfortunately it will be some time before we can accept customers into the warehouse again, even without lockdowns, because we have staff and family members that are actively shielding due to pre-existing health conditions.
