The handle and base are made from a dark Koa while the 6 laminations are also koa but alittle more pale, just enough contrast. I used the same wood in the stand. Here in Hawaii many feel the Lava or stone should not be disturbed. So I have made latex molds and then cast “rocks” out of gypsum concrete. I dye the concrete black and then paint highlights to simulate the natural lava. The wooden portion of the stand attatches to a threaded rod cast into the base so it can be removed to ship.
I am astounded at all the incredible projects and ideas on the LJ site.
