About the fabrication process
When the trees have stopped producing, they are removed from the plantation to make room for new trees. These waste tree trunks are woody, but irregularly shaped and are not worthy of traditional milling into planks. However, their unique grain with short dark veins gives them an exotic appearance and is worthy of the attention of discriminating designers. Smith and Fong Company, the makers of Plyboo, have applied the technology they use in making bamboo plywood to palm products by cutting the wood into strips and bonding them together into plywoods and flooring. Today, these waste tree trunks that were once burned or buried are used in the design of 3 dimensional wall panels, Palm Plywoods and Palm Lumber for furniture and cabinetry and palm flooring. Because of its rich color tones, Palm is considered an alternative to rainforest timbers.
