Hi Joseph, nice design on the bookshelf. Don’t you love working with Koa. I use it all the time on bandsaw boxes and such.

One of my favorite woods
I saw some awesome furniture on Oahu made with Koa, would have loved to brought some home….or moved there.
You did the wood proud with this lovely bookcase
