Padauk

Padauk (or padouk) is an orange wood - often brilliantly so - from Africa or Asia.  Most padauk is probably African, from the Pterocarpus soyauxii tree.  Padauk is very hard and dense, and generally nice to work with.  

Padauk varies from brilliant orange to a rich, dark reddish-brown color but it will eventually change to an orange-tinted, warm brown over time due to exposure to UV light.  Therefore, it's a good idea to protect your padauk miniSpinner from the sun as it will accelerate the color change.  It helps to use a finish with a UV inhibitor, but even then the orange color will eventually fade.
