Blue Mahoe
(Hibiscus elata)
From the Carribean
Sustainably harvested
Blue Mahoe seems to vary in color based upon where it grows.  Some blue mahoe is quite brown, whereas that sold below has blue, violet, light blue, steel blue, green and rarely even a royal blue color, but most of the wood has less than 20% blue. This wood is grown on a plantation in the Carribean in a diverse ecosystem (this is not a tree farm but an ecologically cultivated jungle area with all the natural species present).  You are helping to support this effort every time you buy the wood below.  Reportedly, the wood is very easy to work and holds its color well.  The specific gravity is .63 and the wood is easy to dry compared to most exotics. Aside from spalted wood, this is the only naturally blue-ish wood available!

unless specified otherwise.
