What is the advantage of this International Concepts Shaker Bench?
Parawood, also known as Rubberwood, is considered to be environmentally sound as it uses plantation trees that have been felled at the end of their cycle of latex production and new trees are grown. The wood, therefore, is harvested from a renewable source. Parawood s latex production begins when it is about five or six years old and continues until it is about 25 to 30 years. These trees grow to about 75 feet-80 feet high and are extensively used for making furniture. These trees are native to Central America, India and Indonesia.
Scientific Name Hevea Brasiliensis
Density 7 Birch 7, Ash 8
Strength Group B6 same group as maple
