I thought I would try my hand at turning some Padauk. These two bowls are from the same piece of lumber; however, the finishes sure make them look very different.
The Bowl in the foreground was finished with wipe on Poly; the one in the back with pure Tung Oil. The Tung Oil on the Padauk made it look muddy. Lesson learned! Another lesson I learned was that when thin Padauk is very brittle and will chip rather then cut. You can see the results of that on the details I tried to cut on the bottom of the first bowl.
