Friends of the family came back from Hawaii with a piece of Koa fire wood.
I sliced it up and let it air dry. It ended up making (7) 3/4 inch X 2 inch x 10 inch pieces. A year went by quickly because I didn’t know what to do with it. They wanted something to be made from it but also wasn’t sure what. Here it is after all of that waiting. Approx. 25” x 20” inches square and 19” tall. Only have a handful of 1×1 inch x 1/4 inch pieces left.
Koa, Purple Heart, Hard Maple. Legs and frame are Brazilian Cherry.
Tried to match the apron with the weave pattern. It’s close.
Sanding sealer and clearcoat finish.
