✪ ABOUT THE WOOD ✪

Common name(s): padauk, padouk, African padauk, African coralwood
Botanical name(s): Pterocarpus soyauxii
The Wood Database link: http://www.wood-database.com/african-padauk/

The popular African padauk (Pterocarpus soyauxii) is native to central and tropical Africa. The rich and deep red color combined with moderate prices and good overall workability makes it an excellent choice for just about any project.

Similarly to purpleheart, padauk exposed to sunlight will shift its color into a slightly reddish/greyish brown, so it is best used for indoor projects.

Releases a mild, pleasant smell when being worked that reminds us of vanilla and tobacco.

Marquetry: The wood has a moderately rough texture and it takes a very sharp knife to cut evenly. It probably saws well.

Ringmaking: Bending response is moderately good. However, due to the color shift, it probably not a good choice for rings and other jewelry that you want to last.

✪ We dispatch your order in 1-2 business days.

✪ Default shipping is priority international postal mail (not tracked). You can upgrade to Signed & Tracked at checkout for a small premium. Please be aware that tracking scope may be limited for certain destinations (mostly within Europe).

✪ See the "Express shipping" section for express delivery upgrades.

✪ For estimated delivery times and cost to your region, please refer to our shop shipping policy.

✪ Shipping is automatically combined for multiple items. You will be charged only a single shipping cost, regardless the number of items in your order (exceptions apply, these are always noted).

✪ Your veneer is shipped in a sturdy box or rigid envelope to prevent any damage in transit.
Each of these refer to various methods of slicing up a log for veneer production.

✪ Crown cut (a.k.a. "flat cut" or "plain sliced") results in "cathedral" look with the grain tightly packed around the edges, often with an eye in the center.

✪ Quarter cutting result in very straight grain.

✪ Rift cut is somewhat similar to this quarter cutting and it is frequently used for oak.

Choosing one over the other boils down to your project and preference: they all handle more or less the same. Quarter cut and rift cut veneers may be a bit more expensive as these methods of production results in a lower veneer yield from the log.
Veneers are sliced sequentially from a log, so each consecutive sheet has a very similar look. This enables creating a pleasing visual effect by placing two or more sheets next to each other. With book matching and butt matching (a.k.a. end matching), you flip one of the veneers along one of the axes to get a mirrored, kaleidoscopic look. With slip matching, you build a repetitive pattern by placing sequenced veneers next to each other.

Our veneer sets are typically sequence matched. Consult the description of the given listing for sequence matching information.
Yes, as long as you order the multiples at once. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a sequence match for multiple orders, because somebody else may buy a few sheets off the given sequence in between your orders.
Unless otherwise noted, our veneer is of the standard 0.6 ± 0.1mm (~1/42") thickness.
Our dimension figures are defined as minimums. Usually, the veneer will be a bit larger by a few millimeters. This allows you to square the veneer, cut off rough edges (if any), etc. and still have the required dimensions for your project.
We are looking into that. Give us a shout to help us gauge the interest.
