Burma-Padouk (Pterocarpus macrocarpus) also called Burma-Padauk, Mai-Pradoo, grows in Myanmar (Burma), Thailand and Vietnam and is closely related to African Padauk, which is well known in Germany for its bright red colour. It is a heavy and hard wood, weighs approx. 900 kg/m3 and is highly valued in its home countries because of its universally good properties. It is rather fine-pored and straight-grained, the wood is pale red salmon to dark brick red, often streaked with dark brown stripes, generally less colour intensive than African padouk. When fresh wood is processed, a pleasantly sweet and very strongly spicy aromatic scent is created. Burma-Padauk is used as wood for interior and exterior furnishing and construction, for boat building, on building sites for frames, as parquet, in fine furniture making and for musical instruments.You will get excactly the depicted blank.
