    Koa has some of the highest chatoyance in its figure of any wood. Cool man!

    Oh, other people use the word, some even correctly.
    It is a beautiful wood for a fine set of grips. About thirty years ago I made doors for boats from it; I could by all the 8/4 x 6 I could afford, I assume those days are over.

    Thanks for the compliments, it is some fun material to work with. The material I have was cut in the early 90s

    The smooth area is semi gloss and the checkered area is oiled. I just give or the matte oil name because of its sheen.

    They are on nothing yet. They are for the colts and clones full size.

    I don't know what is was like 30 years ago, but today, you can only harvest the dead trees.
