I think I’ve found a wood I really like for a project Im working on (minimalist computer desk with metal base like so

just an example, my legs and top would be different, but you get the idea.

Anyway, I’ve been looking at slabs for the top and I’ve not been super impressed (or been sticker shocked). Visited a hardwood lumber yard today and discovered Padauk


I love it, I love that the heartwood is white, I love the grain and color and I love that it gets darker over time.

look how freaking amazing that looks!


I can get a 1 inch slab in the size I want for under $100.

Thats all, Im just happy
