Monkeypod is a hardwood that is derived from a graceful and beautiful tree with a 2-4 ft. diameter and a trunk of up to 70 ft. Our Costa Rican Monkeypod is an excellent choice for furniture and turned articles. Dark chocolate browns and golden colors swirl together with black striping to form a beautiful hue. The wood is moderately hard, lightweight and fairly strong. It finishes beautifully and turns easily, making it a natural choice for turners! Monkeypod has colors that are smooth blend of Hawaiian Koa and Chocolate Heart.
