In Hawaii if you think volcano, you have to learn the story of Pele, not a character that you want to mess with! She’s red hot and so is this wood.
This wood is narra. I’ve been told that it is highly prized in the Philippines, which wouldn’t surprise me. It has a wonderful aroma, almost like a rosewood, and enough oil that it just shines once you joint it.
This is a box of drawers. I made to show off that piece of wood that I cut up for the drawer fronts.
