Guanacaste – Parota

Guanacaste is a large tree that grows throughout Central America. It works well with machine and hand tools. Due to the large tree diameter, live-edge slabs are often available for table tops, mantles, and other large projects. This hardwood has good gluing and finishing properties, as well as being quite durable.
