Early Hawaiians described this type of Koa tree as, Koa ‘i‘o ‘ōhi‘a. The Koa wood is hard like ‘ōhi‘a wood with a stripy grain and it is very heavy. The bark of this kind of Koa tree is usually red and is called Maua.

Curly Hawaiian Koa, kiln dried S2S lumber. Both sides of the board have been sanded to a 400 grit. Denatured alcohol was used while photographing to better show the grain.

This Hawaiian Koa wood is an extremely rare find and will make beautiful guitars, ukuleles or furniture! The tree was found buried in the grass on the mountain and we were able to salvage some really great tonewood from it. This old growth Koa tree has wood that is extremely dense with gorgeous striping and beautiful figure.
