Maui Wowie. Yes this is a piece of wood from our winter trip to Maui. I know Ivy Myles remembers this. Sorry for the bad photo but it is too large form my backdrops. Koa wood vessel with top and finial of African Blackwood. Vessel is 10 inches tall.

WOW again, that is beautiful Ron,
Just gotta love that wood.
Thanks for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Looking very nice here Ron, don’t you just love working with Koa I have a buddy that moved over there to Hawaii and here lately he has been sending me some nice Koa, Black Mahogany, and some rather nice curly Mango.

nice turning! I was in Maui last month and brought home 2 big duffel bags of Koa and a big burl I’m working on! I met some great people there, in particular a lady that had lots of Koa turning stock. If only I could have brought it all back with me!
