Aloha Joseph, Very nice looking Mango boxes…I also love working with Mango as well as Koa and Monkey Pod. How’s the VOG over your way?

Do you log your own wood over there? We are in an area where the VOG blows around the Island and heads over your way most of the time. Of late it has been bad here at night. Very clear with blue water this morning.

Yea, Koa is getting harder to find. I don’t log but have friends that do, and I buy from them. People just don’t understand the cost of working with Koa…getting to the point I use other woods more often. Do you sell your wood?

VOG is Volcanic Air Pollution..the best way to put it. It comes from the Volcano that has been blowing that stuff out since the 80’s. Most of the times we have the trade winds that blow it away from us, but most of that time it lands on the Island Joseph lives.
