I like to work with Padauk. I think it’s beautiful and very workable if you don’t mind your shop turning a bit red.
I started looking around and I remembered that the guys where I buy my wood said they get some of their wood from a local lumber yard called Shutte. So I emailed them and was quoted ” Surfaced 4/4 Padouk – 3/4” finish, random width and length – sells for $8.54 per board foot. Surfaced 8/4 – 1-5/8” finish, random width and length – sells for $9.21 per board foot.
So I just saved myself about 5$ a BF.
