The top of this stool is made of three pieces of Padauk that I glued together.  I switched the pieces around to align the lighter color sapwood stripes until I came up with this configuration and felt well pleased. I'm a big fan of Padauk. I like the way it smells (from afar). I like the way it looks and feels when it's carved. In contrast, Wenge is brittle and much harder to work. It splinters and creates massive amounts of dust. However, it cleans up with lots of sanding and finishes nicely with Arm-R-Seal. Wenge legs and spindles add some real heft to this stool and look almost as dark as Ebony or Blackwood. These two types of wood look great together.
