Koa, the best known of Hawaiian woods, grows year round and can reach heights of 100 feet. The specific gravity is around .55, making it similar to American Black walnut in density. It has been used for centuries by Hawaiians to make wa’a (dugout canoes). It is a great wood for many purposes including musical instruments, bowls and all kinds of projects where a medium weight wood can be used. Our figured Koa has the beautiful chatoyance in the curl seen in the photo above, and the distance between curls vary (the one above has very tight, close curl). As best we can tell, it is not classified as endangered. The biggest threat to Koa in Hawaii appears to be overgrazing of cattle. Click here for a larger detail of the Koa photo.

Hawaiian Koa I-Q

Dried Koa with high figure. Material prices have risen so high on koa that we haven't been buying more, just selling the stock we have. Figured koa is selling for up to 500 dollars per board foot for pieces that are not dry and have some defects. The defect free dry pieces we sell are selling for a fraction of that amount, as long as they last ----and the listings on this page are almost all we have. Notes: Don't forget we also sell Australian blackwood, a very close relative of koa that looks almost exactly the same but costs much less! Click HERE to see Australian Blackwood
