Natural and “Earthy” things for your home. We use them in ours; maybe you will too.
Coconut trees are gorgeous wood, before and after finishing. Nothing else looks like it; its uniqueness is more than just looks.
Coco is extremely hard wood on the outside, and softer inside toward the center. The outer wood is darker, and inside is lighter color. Our stands are made from the softer inside and the Sounding Boards from the harder, outer parts. See the next photos about strands running through… they give coconut trees their amazing strength to withstand high winds.
STRANDS GIVE STRENGTH
Coconut trees have no growth rings. None. what it has is many long fibers running up the tree; these fibers are very hard, surrounded by soft(er) wood. On outside it’s all hard. Inside, just the fibers. That makes for VERY cool looking product after it’s finished. Here they are when the tree’s first cut;
FLECKS OF GOLD
and here they are after finishing. They look like flecks of gold; especially when we stain with a dark penetrating stain.
Push pins will go into the softer inner wood easier than the hard outside; that’s how we hold your phone up. You can always re-position the pins too, if you like.
We give you four pre-made holes for pushpins, along with ten assorted color pins.
HOW TO CLIMB A COCONUT TREE
Our neighbor shows us how to climb a coconut tree…barefoot! (that’s the only way, by the way…)
The notches cut into bark are on every tree, made for foothold and handholds for climbing. Notches make interesting cool markings in our natural coco wood products.
Harvesting of coconuts is done every three months for coco, to make oil and charcoal. Watch this and decide if you could- or would- do it!
