Cutting Boards and Coasters - Wood Origin


East Indian Walnut is just one of the many names for the wood we use at Tuckahoe Hardwoods for our Live Edge Collection. The scientific name of the species is Samanea Saman, but other common names are Saman, Rain Tree, and Monkey Pod. The Saman is originally native to Central and South America – from Mexico south to Brazil and Peru, but now grows in tropical regions the world over. It is widely prevalent in South and Southeast Asia, as well as the Pacific Islands, including Hawaii. The wood from the tree is used for furniture, musical instruments, wood sculptures, and of course, Live Edge Cutting Boards from Tuckahoe Hardwoods. The most famous Rain Tree was a 200-foot-tall Samanea saman tree in Tobago that was used for the construction of the family's famous tree house on the movie “Swiss Family Robinson”.

                                                

Tuckahoe Hardwoods owns and operates a furniture shop in Indonesia, where we only purchase sustainably harvested logs for all the wood we use. Saman is a widely available tree that is grown throughout Indonesia undergoing constant re-plantings and reforestation. Tuckahoe Hardwoods proudly supports and uses only green certified logs of Saman for our cutting boards.
