Sustainably harvested from solid Monkey Pod Wood, this unique artisan handcrafted accent table with its nature inspired design will be a perfect addition to any room in your home. Whether as a stool or side table, standing together or alone, their presence is naturally chic. Each graceful twist and turn of the natural “Z” shape has been hand carved by Artisans in Indonesia.
Each table begins from a large segment cut from the branch of a Monkey Pod Tree. The segments are rough-cut with a saw to remove the bark, and to create the general, more rectangular shape of the stool. This single, solid block of wood is then passed to an Artisan who is highly skilled in carving. With just a set of chisels, we watched as one man sat cross-legged on the ground chipping and carving the wood. Slow and precise, his steady hands sculpted near-perfect symmetry as he hollowed the stool’s center and carved the graceful twist into its sides.
Once he was finished, another artisan took the stool into a small studio to sand and chisel away any remaining ridges and hard marks left on the wood from the carving Artisan before him. He evened the entire surface to a smooth finish and passed the stool to the final artisan, or artisans.
