A Mixture of Science and Artistry Helps Ensure the Highest Quality

All our live edge wood slabs are oven dried which is without a doubt the most important step to ensure a superior quality. The wood is set to dry for a minimum of 60 days at temperatures that can attain 180 degrees. With this method, we ensure a stability and humidity level that is ideal for our products. Additionally, oven dried wood makes the product less susceptible to cracking, twisting, warping and also eliminates mould. Our wood slabs are then sanded on 4 sides and the openings, if any exist, are filled with a particular technique involving resin and epoxy.

In fact, Parota trees are one of the few exotic species not found on any CITES or other endangered species listings. They are commonly used for reforestation projects and their fast growth and vitality provide ample relief. They are widely found throughout Central America, especially in Costa Rica where it is the country’s national tree.
