Hawaiian Curly Koa Hollowform
5 1/4 in. x 5 1/4 in. x 8 1/2 in.
I got the material for this and one other piece in a trade for some of my Hawaiian style Ivory fish hooks more
than a decade ago.
Koa of any kind is hard to come by and a piece like this is a treasure, even as just
a block of wood. The strong curl can be seen from every perspective.
I turned this a little thick, about
1/4 to 3/8 inches thick. I didn't want to risk losing it. It has been sanded to 1200 grit and finished with numerous coats
of micro-crystalline "Renaissance" wax.
