This product is made from Acacia Wood:
Acacia, also known as the thorn tree, can be found growing in Australia, Africa, South America and the tropical parts of Asia. The Janka hardness scale measures the resistance of various species of wood to denting. Registering at 2300 psi on the Janka scale, acacia wood is 55% harder than European white oak.
It’s believed that the acacia has been around for more than 20 million years. It’s a sustainable wood for furniture production because once cut, another one can be planted, and they grow rapidly.
If you’re looking for furniture that is heavy, strong, and resistant to wear and tear, acacia wood furniture should meet your needs.

Veneering is actually an ancient art that dates back to ancient Egyptian times when veneers were used on their furniture and sarcophagi. In woodworking, veneer refers to thin slices of wood that are glued and pressed onto core panels which can be used for a variety of purposes, such as doors, tops and side panels for cabinets, wood flooring and more.
Veneer is created either by "peeling" the trunk of a tree or by slicing large rectangular blocks of wood. The appearance of the grain and figure in wood comes from slicing through the growth rings of a tree and its appearance varies depending on the angle at which the wood is sliced
