Topic tags/keywords: paduak

I read today that paduak dust is very bad to breathe, and the wood turns brown after some time, especially in sunlight. That’s bad news since I’ve been working with it – and incorporating into customer projects – for a year now.

However, I love the color and grain of paduak. So here’s my question: what wood is similar in color and texture to paduak, yet not toxic and won’t brown over time?

-- Have a blessed day!
