The B Bench


Our Sustainable Monkey Pod Wood B Bench 24 inch length x 14 inch width x 15 inch height with Eco Friendly, Natural Food-safe Livos Walnut Oil Finish presents with a flattened top surface with a B shaped bottom with two separate points of contact. This sturdy versatile functional art piece provides a comfortable, roomy seat with a useful storage area; or use as a coffee or sofa table. Set on end, the accent table adds its sculptural B accent as a side table.

Each is a Work of Art, Functional Sustainable Wood Eco Friendly Art! Craftspeople from the Chiang Mai area in Northern Thailand create these unique pieces with the simplest of tools. After each Monkey Pod wood (Acacia, Koa, Rain Tree grown for wood carving) piece is kiln dried, carved and sanded by local artisans, it is rubbed in Livos Walnut tone oil creating a water resistant and food safe matte finish. These natural oils are translucent, so the wood grain detail is highlighted. Color ranges from medium to dark Walnut brown tones that will darken as the wood ages. There is no oily feel; and cannot bleed into carpets, as it contains natural lacs.

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. Each piece is packaged with cartons from recycled cardboard with no plastic or other fillers. Made from the branches of the Acacia tree in Thailand – where each branch is cut and carved to order (allowing the tree to continue growing), the wood is kiln dried, carved and sanded by local Thai artisans. 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 various separations or cracks on your piece when it arrives. There may be some slight variation in size, color, texture, and finish.
