Story Behind the Art:
Thailand's Khun Pacume speaks of her craft: 'I learned to carve during the rice seasons, while we waited for harvest, from my father who learned from his father. Our family works together with cousins as time allows and there are jobs to carve. I create some of my own designs but most work is by customer design or modifications of my original designs. Working with wood is peaceful and allows our family to earn extra money between seasons.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected.
Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
As with all natural exotic wood products there will be some slight variation in color, texture, and finish color. This is mainly due to the underlying natural wood tones, which the translucent oil is applied over, creating a truly unique one of a kind Functional Work of Art Products will have visible marks from tools used, patches from small repairs, knot holes, natural inclusions, and or worm holes There will be various separations or cracks on your piece when it arrives. These naturally occurred as the wood was dried and shrank. Over time, some continued shrinkage may accentuate existing separations or generate new ones. This does not compromise the structural performance or integrity of the wood and is considered inherent to the natural beauty of the design. All of our products are natural and handmade. Therefore sizes are just an approximation but are generally within plus or minus a quarter inch. We cannot guarantee the products are perfectly square or flat. We do create useable and reasonably flat surfaces while highlighting the natural wood inclusions and hand carved surface. We do not fill in or repair carving marks, or natural inclusions like knots and branch growths. Instead we sand to blend them in and assure smooth edges and surfaces that are useable. On some products we will use the same wood to fill in old worm holes and larger separations The wood is from a tropical climate, and like all wood, is still 'alive.' It will change some over time based on your climate, and whether you place the piece in direct sunlight, or by a heating or cooling source, like in front of an air vent. Small cracks may appear but this is normal and will stop occurring over time The color, after finish is applied, will vary from the pictures depicted for every single piece. This is because the oil is the same tone but the color of the underlying wood of the piece it is going on varies. Monkey Pod Wood (Acacia, Rain Tree) like all woods, has varying tones of browns in the reddish to black ranges depending on its age. The new growth, or 'white wood', ages from white to yellowish changing to light yellowish browns over time. In all of these tropical woods, mold blooms that create dark stains are natural.

Love these -- they're beautiful, we get lots of compliments, and they are very versatile. We used them as stools when the rest of our furniture hadn't arrived, and now are using them as side tables in the lounge. They are strong and stable -- they have comfortable supported my husband (who is 6ft 3). A bit wobbly if you want to climb up on them -- but that's probably not what they're intended for!Read More
These are gorgeous stools or chairs, plant stands or however you wish to use the. Unusual eye catchers that really make the room look richer because they are natural wood but so unusual. Would also be beautiful with a glass top. And so affordable.Read More
This creates a very interesting display used with a plant or sculpture. Hand carved so it does have some rough finish and natural cracks in the wood grain. The walnut oil finish is a very rich color which nicely brings out the highlights in the monkey pod wood.Read More
