Make Room for the Whitewood Super Kitchen Center. It’s a gorgeous little kitchen island that is a great space saver. Leave the top unfinished for safe food prep. Lightly coat it with food safe mineral oil or butcher block oil to make sure it stays conditioned for a lifetime.
Our kitchen island units are made from a solid wood called Parawood. It’s an eco friendly and sustainable hardwood. It has a light grain and color.

Real wood, not fake wood
Real wood has a strength that stands the test of time.
Many competitor products use particle board (also called MDF) that is covered in a laminate (plastic that has a wood look). If any part of the laminate or veneer peels away, the exposed particle board will crumble. The moisture expands the particle board and is not repairable.
Furniture in the Raw only represents solid wood and real wood plywood in all its products. We never use inferior particle board.
Parawood grows on Malaysian plantations where it’s primary use is for latex production. In the past the trees were burned before it was discovered the beauty and hardness of this wood.
Now harvested for furniture manufacturing when they are 25 to 30 years old, it’s truly ‘eco-friendly’ in that the wood is harvested from a renewable source. New trees are planted when the latex yields become extremely low. This makes rubberwood a great option for furniture. When today’s concern is regarding renewable options, parawood is a logical, affordable choice.
This piece comes in two sections. It’s recommended to choose the same finish for each section. The counter top left unfinished and natural and can be maintained with a food safe mineral oil.
