Benefits of Mango Wood Furniture
Mango trees are well known and popular for their sweet fruit, but did you know that they are one of the best furniture materials that is also sustainable?
Other hardwoods take a long time to grow, therefore their price is going to be a bit higher, and are harder to produce due to their scarcity.
Most people have never heard of mango wood furnitures, but soon enough they will. There are many good attributes of this material that makes it easy to work with, and cheap to buy.
These good points will eventually make them reach or surpass the volume of other hardwood furnitures sold.
A mango wood furniture can have a rather unique finish thanks to the great variety of colors a mango heartwood can have.
It ranges from light brown to dark brown, some pieces even have a hint of pink. With this great variety a mango tree furniture will look unique and a fresh point of any room or kitchen.
It's hard enough to make every day pieces of. Chairs, wardrobes, even beds and kitchen tables are being manufactured.
Even though it's hard enough to make most furnitures, it's still one of the softer variations, working with it is easy and that keeps the costs down.
This wood is sustainable. It means that the tree is planted mainly for its fruit which Asian farmers pick and export or use for the local cuisine. It's only timbered when it stops giving the fruits.
Because the main trunk grows up to 3-5 feet in diameter and 70-80 feet in height in a very short time span. This makes it possibly the most important furniture material of the future.
Unfortunately the tree is prone to diseases, fungi are particularly dangerous.
The better furniture manufacturers make sure they check every tree before they work them into a furniture of any description.
In the western world there is a particular demand for quality hardwood furniture, and while there are other species supplying the industry, such as teak and oak, mango wood is the fastest growing hard wood the industry can use, and it's still easy enough to work with to enable fast and precise processing.
Mango wood furnitures are easy to buy especially in the United Kingdom and they're cheap enough for virtually anyone to furniture their homes with.
While these pieces had been less common, they will certainly gain popularity in the future when other sources of hard wood will be too expensive to buy.
