I love working with Padauk. It is a hard wood that is reasonably forgiving and the color, wow!
I got this basic design from a book but tweaked it here and there for the fun of it. I ran a layer of Canarywood through the laminated block to break up the super bright orange of the Padauk. The drawers don’t have pulls. If you look at picture 4 you can see that there is an open groove running down the side. You simply slide your finger in at the back and pull the drawer out with your finger.
A rubdown with natural stain and then 3 coats of poly topped it off. The drawers are lined in wine colored flock.
