This beautiful Hawaiian Koa lumber is kiln dried and has been surfaced on two sides. It has warm, rich colors as it is from the Big Island of Hawaii where the soil is more acidic. Fabulous iridescence is present in all boards. Boards are 95% clean or better (unless noted or marked as rustic) and are excellent quality! The rich depth of color in this lumber is unrivaled; it’s some of the finest color we’ve seen in years. Beautiful figure will vary from board to board. This mini slab has incredible color and figure! There are some live edges with tapered ends. There are knots, splits, and a full incursion present. This is what we cut up for our highest grade knife scales, pistol grips, etc. Please see the edge grain photos.
