Replied to a craigslist ad today, and received a good load of old padauk. This was apparently from some piece of furniture made entirely of solid stock padauk. It’s all about 3/4” thick in various lengths. Not pictured is a large tabletop glueup of the stuff, over twice the size of the large square in the back. All in all, maybe 20 board feet of padauk for $40… pretty good deal. Everything is pretty sun darkened, but it should clean up nicely. There’s surprisingly few checks and warps for having sat outside this guy’s house in the rain/snow/etc. I’ll have to pick out a good lot of screws/nails and strip the finish, but there’s a lot of usable goodness in there.

That is some great lookin’ wood, but cleaning up after cutting or turning any of it is a pain.

Bill, I always call it cheeto wood, since that’s what I look like every time I’m done working with it (covered in orange dust).
