This is a great use of a portion of a monkeypod log that usually gets discarded. Lumber mills don't usually mess around with the part of the trunk of the tree that is closest to the ground because of all the holes and general weirdness. They like nice continuous logs. That's where our lumber salvager and reforestation project owner in Costa Rica comes in. When we work with him, he lets us pick through all of the cutoffs like these. The result, once you have cut these nice clean faces to what was once an unruly chunk of wood ends up being a work of art that reflects where the wood came from: a living tree.
