The lightweight, fast-growing melina tree is grown throughout the African continent. It is a common product for crafting African djembe drums, unusual furniture pieces, and building material. Earth-conscious consumers value the sustainability of the Melina tree. Its short growth cycle ensures this plant is in no danger of the over foresting that has decimated other building and craft-making materials. Each of our handcrafted melina stools is a small, one-of-a-kind furniture piece that showcases the unique qualities of the selected wood pieces. Use your melina rustic hand carved table as part of an attractive art display in your living space. Or invite warmth into your bedroom by using it as a side reading table.
