Wooden Cutting Board

$50.00

A small sized board made of solid wood, chocolate colored, can be used as a cutting board, but we really love it as a serving tray or cheese platter. This is really a fantastic addition to your kitchen and home. 

The Alma Studio, is a unique wood studio in Panama. The wood they use is uniquely rescued from the depths of Lake Bayano in Panama by professional divers from nearby indigenous communities who remove subterranean logs from the 354 km2 of flooded rainforest that would be wasted if not rediscovered. These trees are given new life as they are submerged and felled underwater. The emerging trunk is dimensioned and dried in industrial furnaces. This results in a unique and sustainable building material to create durable furniture that brings our homes to life.

Our Product

THE ALMA STUDIO is a workshop that seeks to integrate nature's unique elements into thoughtful design. The richness of the natural world directly inspires our process, how we source and how we build.  We seek to create designs that are faithful to their origin and add true value to our lives. 

Our line of wooden furniture comes from the depths of Lake Bayano in Panamá. We work with the local indigenous community to remove subterranean logs from the 354 km2 of flooded rainforest that would be wasted if not rediscovered. These trees are given new life as they are submerged and felled underwater. The emerging trunk is dimensioned and dried in industrial furnaces. This results in a unique and sustainable building material to create durable furniture that brings our homes to life.

Our Process

By recovering disused trees, we reduce the need to exploit precious resources on our land. This also provides a safer shipping and water transport route for the local indigenous population and provides a unique construction material with sustainable certification.

Our line of furniture focuses on Live Edge tables, desks, cutting boards, wood floor tiles, and Melbourne style wood walls. We collaborate with architects, interior designers and other artists.

Our work is designed and manufactured by hand in the heart of the Americas in Panama City, Panama.
