Hevea wood is a hardwood, it has several names, including "Rubberwood", "Parawood", "Asian Beech" or "Malaysian Oak,".
It has many uses: furniture, flooring, chopping boards and games to name but a few.
It's colour can vary from pale cream to light brown. It is moderately coarse, straight and even texture.
Rubber trees that have ended their productive life of producing latex 25 - 30 years are processed into an ecologically sustainable hardwood called Hevea wood.
Hevea is a stable wood, reducing the likelihood of warping, and can be successfully colour stained or oiled to enhance its appearance and prolong its life.
