Hardwood Choices

Padouk Fine Woodworking

Custom display cases, ship model cases, fine art cases, vases, a variety of containers and accents are created from exotic hardwoods by professional Woodworkers with more than 40 years experience.

Padouk or Padauk is a very hard wood in copper color tones. Requires a urethane or lacquer finish to maintain the deep, rich copper colors or they will turn very dark. Similar to the way natural copper turns from shiny to oxidized brown in the elements. Looks outstanding as an accent with copper hulled tall ship models. No other wood resembles these colors and with copper there is no better compliment. This mostly straight grain wood has a rich, deep, translucent elegance.

Each one is custom built by hand in the USA.
