Padouk For Inlays.... Any Good ?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. I have some Padouk that I sliced into nice sized inlay pieces. I think the contrast of the reddish wood will look great inlayed into ebony.

anyone ever try this combo ? will the woods wear out at different rates ??

Thanks in advance -


It is not quite as hard as ebony and so it will wear a little more quickly, but a little epoxy grain fill will prevent that - and fill in the huge canyons it has for pores. Then buff out the board as usual - should look cool.
