Parawood, also known as Rubberwood, is considered to be environmentally sound as it uses plantation trees that have been felled at the end of their cycle of latex production and new trees are grown. The wood, therefore, is harvested from a renewable source. Parawood s latex production begins when it is about five or six years old and continues until it is about 25 to 30 years. These trees grow to about 75 feet-80 feet high and are extensively used for making furniture. These trees are native to Central America, India and Indonesia.

Customer reviewsOutstanding value and customizable
I bought two of these nightstands to pair with a new and very expensive solid wood king bed from Room Board. I wasn't willing to shell out another 900 for two matching nightstands, so I thought I'd try customizing these unfinished nightstands to approximate the look of the R B versions. Since these nightstand are 100 solid wood, I had a friend square off the tops with a table saw to create a more modern look, which only took a few minutes. To get the measurements, I first assembled then first disassembled the units assembly is extremely simple. After disassembling again, I gave the wood a light sanding it was already sanded, but there's no harm in resending , then I applied Minwax Wood Conditioner prior to staining. I tested a number of stains on the underside of the bottom panel and ended up using Varithane Summer Oak stain, which was absorbed perfectly by the wood when wiping on with a rag.. Rubberwood takes stain nicely, so I could've skipped the wood conditioner step, but it only took a few minutes.
