Monkeypod is a uniquely beautiful and versatile hardwood. A large, fast growing tree, this hardwood grows extensively throughout its native home in Central and South America and, after its introduction, has thrived in Asia and the Pacific Islands. This results in a relatively affordable and sustainable exotic hardwood.
Common Names: Monkey Pod, Rain Tree, Raintree, Saman, Parota, Albizia saman
Origin: Central America, South America, and Hawaii.
Color: Monkeypod wood usually displays a variety of color in each board. It is generally golden to dark brown with darker streaks.
General Workability: Although it is an exotic wood, Monkeypod is relatively light and soft which makes it easy to work with and cut. The tight, interlocked grain can sometimes cause tearout or fuzzy edges, but it glues and finishes very well.
Project Ready? These thin wood sheets (previously called "Scroll Saw Ready" hardwoods) are perfect for scroll sawing, laser cutting and engraving, thick veneers, and much more.
Our Project Ready Monkeypod boards are kiln dried and surfaced and sanded to 150 grit on two sides.
