Padauk Pedestal Bowl


This Padauk (Pterocarpus Soyauxii) in Chestnut Products Wood Wax is the perfect bowl for displaying those important keepsakes.

The heartwood colour can vary, ranging from a pale pinkish orange to a deep brownish red. Most pieces tend to start reddish orange when freshly cut, darkening substantially over time to a reddish/purplish brown (some lighter pieces age to a greyish brown).

Padauk is currently not listed on either of the endangered/conservation lists.



The colour is entirely natural!

Perfect for the person who loves red!

This fabulous red wood bowl is 100% African Padauk wood (official name, Pterocarpus soyauxii). Padauk is also called Vermillion and is a 30+ meter tall tree with circular flat seeds that is native to the tropical rainforests of Central and tropical West Africa. The wood is orange red when cut and darkening to red or almost purple over time.

This bowl is hand turned in Bristol and classically styled with a flared base. It’s sealed with high-sheen (clear) wax.

The finish is resistant to finger and water marks. The finish is ‘part 3’ approved, meaning it’s safe as a child’s toy, and therefore suitable as a fruit bowl or other wipe-clean purposes. Use as a place to store your keys so you never lose them, or line with kitchen roll for nibbles when you’ve got friends over.

The bowl is circa 9 x 3 inches (23 x 7.5 cm) and the depth of the inside is around 1 1/2 inches (4.5 cm).

Would make an excellent fifth wedding anniversary gift (wood) or romantic birthday present. Also a great Valentine’s present!

A unique gift – one of kind.
