Has anyone have any experience with these woods? I'm going to buy one of them to make a cabinet for my bedroom...More like a giant medicine cabinet on steroids type cabinet.

Paduak , I like the color....Movingui i like because can get some good contrasts with another wood

Just would like to know how they finish , how so they sand and router.... Anything else you have to offer is appreciated.

Padauk is nice but, like Bob, I've never seen the other wood, have only heard of it. Padauk is very dusty when you sand it and the orange dust seems to go everywhere. With exposure to light Padauk will turn to a rich brown over time. But it's easy to work.

I used it on the inside back of a guitar build but it's a little darker now. This was right after sanding and one coat of Shellac -

Movingui and Paduak both work well with hand tools and power tools and would look nice used together on the same piece of furniture. Love the orange/red brown color of the Paduak both fresh cut and aged. The Movingui or satinwood has a gray yellow to tan color and is slightly prone to small splinters but over all machines well. I think the dustiness of the Paduak is just the color showing up better than your standard dust.

Some people have problems working with both these woods so the proper safety gear should be used.

This is a picture of one of my tie tacks made with Movingui.
