Kebony

Making maintenance-free wood

About

Kebony's revolutionary process sees easy and quick-to-grow sustainable woods take on the appearance and qualities of hard wood. The process actually changes the molecular structure of the wood, allowing what was soft wood to be used in a vast array of hard wood applications. Kebony offers a truly practical alternative to using irreplaceable tropical hard wood.
