Our Sustainable Monkey Pod Wood Twist Stool with Eco Friendly, Natural, Food-safe Livos Agate Grey Oil Finish is carved from Monkey Pod wood and is completely eco-friendly. The beauty of this design lies in its simplicity. It is bold, yet gentle; rustic yet refined. One quarter twists support this piece, which can serve as an end table, stand or stool; they can serve as a serving table or bench when put together. Each is hand carved - no two are alike. Craftspeople from the Chiang Mai area in Northern Thailand create these pieces with the simplest of tools.
Each piece is a Work of Art! After each Monkey Pod wood (Acacia, Rain Tree grown for wood carving) piece is dried, and carved, it is rubbed in Livos Agate Grey oil creating a water resistant and food safe matte finish. The oil makes the wood turn to an antique white look with a light grey patina finish. The light portions of wood turn to shades of beige, and the dark lightens to shades of brown with a light transparent grey top coat over the white antique looking undercoat. There is no oily feel, and cannot bleed into carpets. We make minimal use of electric hand sanders in the finishing process. All products are dried in solar or propane kilns. No chemicals are used in the process, ever. This piece, made from the branches of the quick-growing Acacia tree in Thailand - where each branch is cut and carved to order (allowing the tree to continue growing), is packaged with cartons from recycled cardboard with no plastic or other fillers. As this is a natural product, the color and grain of your piece of Nature will be unique, and may include small checks or cracks that occur when the wood is dried. Sizes are approximate. Products could have visible marks from tools used, patches from small repairs, knot holes, natural inclusions or holes. There may be separations or cracks on your piece when it arrives. There may be some slight variation in size, color, texture, and finish. No two will be the same color. Only listed product included.
