Parota bench

Filed under: Woodworking — thefusionguy @ 10:17 pm


I made this bench from a parota board I bought at Tropical Exotic Hardwood in Carlsbad CA Parota is a huge tree and gigantic slabs are available. The tree is tropical but not endangered. The wood is very light and porous, so I finished this piece with a gloss varnish. It’s outside the side door, where we can use it while taking our shoes off after walking the beach.
