Just returned from Kauai with some great local wood! Ive got two small batches of koa. The first was dry and ready to mill, which I have here. It is the less figured, slightly more "budget" Koa... If there is such a thing. My other batch was purchased wet (28% MC) Ive got to get it down to under 10% to work with. This could take months. But this wood is exhibition grade, figured Koa! If youre willing to wait and privy to airing out your wallet on the finest wood known to man, this second batch is for you
No guarantees tho as I took a big risk paying this kind of money for wet wood and praying it doesn't crack during the drying process.
If you've never seen Koa, nothing, and I mean NOTHING glows like Koa wood. Its wooden gold, it really is!
Anyway, on to what I have!
If you have questions or wish to purchase one of these boxes, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
These first two are twins. 3x5" Koa. $70 ea. $125 for the pair.
I was desperate to find some Monkey Pod. Not easy. I ended up finding a guy selling Monkey pod cutting boards at a craft fair. I bought one and repurposed it into a fly box. This baby is spectacular! The color and flash in the grain with the cream sap wood is sooooo nice! I put my highest grade cork in this one that I reserve for my very best boxes.
3x5" Monkey Pod $85
These next two are my "Riffle" Pocket Boxes. They have the same Koa as above on the lid and the body is Mahogany. Beautiful combo!
This one is $50
This Koa actually does have some slight figure in the grain
This box is the same as above, but I added some fun engraving on it. kinda gave it that island feel
$60 *SALE PENDING*
Thank you for looking!
