Monkey pod is a tropical hardwood found in Central America and the Pacific regions. As hardwoods go it is low to medium density. From Central America it tends to be a golden color, but from Hawaii it can have beautiful streaks of reds and browns.

Note: All pictures of boards that appear wet, have been wiped with denature alcohol to help show natural color. We use denature alcohol because it evaporates and does not effect the moisture content of the wood. Also, please keep in mind that the pictures below are only examples of the wood and not actual products available for sale.
