Padauk

This listing of veneer consists of both Padauk VeneerPadauk and Narra. Padauk is the red to reddish-orange veneer shown below. The warmer orange pictures below are Narra veneers from the Philippines.  Both are gorgeous species that look outstanding with a clear finish. I've seen Padauk used as accents within a project but the best look is a full Padauk project with accents in a dark, coarse grain exotic such are Wenge or Ziricote.

Looking for large sheets of this species? We also offer it in AA grade paper-backed veneer, which can be applied with contact cement or any other veneer adhesive.
