Our shop in Costa Rica sells beautiful tropical hardwood furniture in a variety of styles from rustic to elegant. Our craftsmen can work from a photo or even a drawing if you want something custom made. The first two photos here are examples of work we recently completed; the rest on this page are photos of typical styles made in Costa Rica, some by us and some by others. We appreciate all those who have us growing trees for them on our plantations. If we don't keep planting trees, none of us ordinary folk will be able to afford solid tropical hardwood furniture like this in the future.

This teak baby crib is the woodworker's own design. It has toys hanging in front of a mirrored headboard, and converts to a child's bed. The changing area comes out and becomes two nightstands.

Wall unit detail:
|The same furniture factory in Ciudad Quesada made the mixed tropical hardwood dining table and six chairs below. The dark wood is bálsamo (Myroxylon balsamum), a very heavy tropical hardwood with a beautiful grain pattern, and the lighter wood is mahogany. This dining set is one of a kind, designed by Amy and the factory owner. Right now, there is only a small amount of both of these tropical hardwoods stored up, and the supply has all but stopped. That's why it's so important that we're planting them on our tree farms for the future.|
