DETAILS
Hawaiian Kamani, Calophyllum inophyllum, is broadly dispersed throughout the tropics, including the Hawaiian and other Pacific islands. These trees typically grow between 25–65 feet tall at maturity. They grow on beaches and coastal forests within 2,000 ft. elevation above water but prefer growing on the beach with sandy well drained soil. Initially they grow up to 3 ft. in height per year on good sites, although usually much slower.  Kamani is an interesting tree that is typically overlooked as a timber producer as it appears more like an overgrown shrub.  Small boards and turning blanks are the extent of what the tree will produce.  Kamani wood is slightly denser than Mahogany but works well and takes a fine polish. There is some shimmer in quarter sawn grain produced from slightly interlocked grain.  The wood is susceptible to checking if dried too quickly.  Colors are similar to Hawaiian Koa minus the black streaks that can be present in Koa.  The lighter colored blanks have some subtle figure while the darker heartwood blanks have warmer color tones.

W26645: Dry and ready to use. This has a couple checks but the top face is beautiful and this would work great for an end table or other project.
