This exotic wood comes from my father in law's stash. The Padouk tree grows on islands between India and Malaya and is prized for it's weight and beautiful deep red wood with darker grain running through it. I cut out my shape, drilled the holes, sanded everything smooth and sealed the block with a clear acrylic coating. This one will display 8 hand tools, and holds everything from your heavy duty nippers and beat up needle nose pliers to dainty round nose pliers and crimping tools. The block is 5 1/2 inches long, 5 inches wide about 1 1/2 inches thick. The holes are 5/8 inches across and 1 inch deep. Just imagine having your tools easy to see and reach and displayed in such a beatiful and exotic wooden holder!
