It's Durable. Monkey Pod wood is a tropical hardwood, naturally resilient to decay and insect attacks. Coupled with our long lasting, low VOC lacquer finish, your table will be able to handle whatever life throws at it.
It's Sustainable. Monkey Pod trees grow abundantly in the tropical regions of the world. As a company we strive to source all our materials sustainably. All Monkey Pod wood comes from specialized tree farms and never from areas of deforestation.
It's Beautiful. Golden brown wood grains contrast with lighter sapwood and combine with truly natural Live Edges to create a beautiful piece with no shortage of character.

What Can You Make? Really, your imagination is the limit. These Live Edge slabs are commonly made into coffee and side tables, consoles and benches, shelving, bar tables, and beautiful dining tables, conference tables, or desks. Meanwhile, some folks have used these as counter tops or counter extensions, hearths and headboards.
Choose Your Stain. Keep it as nature intended with our natural stain. This finish best exemplifies the natural contrasts between the inner and outer layers of the wood by highlighting the natural grains, mineral deposits, knots and sap. Or opt for a more traditional look, by choosing the colonial or walnut stains. For a more chic modern look, consider graphite or dark walnut.
Choose Your Edge Detail. Edge details (shown above) include your choice of natural, gold, silver, graphite, gray wash, and black.
Choose Your Finish. The crowd-favorite here in Austin is the satin finish. It's kind of the Goldilocks zone of sealants- not too glossy, not too matte. The semi-gloss is commonly used with our darker stains such as graphite and dark walnut to give your piece that more finished designer luster. Slabs can of course be left raw. Raw slabs are wax coated, giving the wood less protection than if it were sealed and finished with our lacquer sealant.
