Known as the “Elephant Ear Tree”, Parota is praised in the woodworking world for its natural luster and beautiful golden-brown coloring with honey gold streaks in its heartwood. Parota is easy to work with because it responds extremely well to hand and machine tools. Parota showcases it durability and versatility by offering a wide variety of application uses such as: knife handle material, inlays, specialty wood pieces and even furniture frames. With Hawaiian Koa becoming harder to come across; Parota makes a more than suitable replacement. It offers a texture and a more consistent color that Koa and other Acacia species cannot. It glues and finishes exceptionally well and will give your next project the professional look and feel it deserves.
