Mango Desk Tops Near Completion

The desktops for the new Media Studio are being made of a special mango wood. The tree, a giant one, was gifted to the monastery a few years back, and we recently milled the massive trunk for the new desks for the monks. Today they are receiving their finish, creating stunning contrast and bringing out their beautiful designs.

This ancient tree had such color inside, and after being planed and sanded, the wood looks more like some exotic art form. Check out the closeups in this slideshow. Notice one of them has a natural edge, so you can still see the shape of the tree.

Which one should we send off to MOMA?

    Magnificent! They draw you in…. As for MOMA – I sure would resist sending them the one with the natural edge!

    The natural design on in the wood looks like those NASA photos we see of outer space! Great work by our dedicated monks! Aum.
