Acacia koa
3.5" x 9.2"

Wood comes from the Estate of Pat Simmons, founding member of the Doobie Brothers band, and Rock and Roll Hall of fame member.
Acacia Koa is a flowering tree in the pea family. It is endemic to Hawaii. In the Hawaiian, Language Koa means warrior, brave and or fearless. The Koa that I use for my art is mostly windfall Koa.

As a woodturner, I can use the parts of the tree that a furniture maker can’t use, mainly the crotches. That is where the best and most colorful curly grain is located! After the local mills harvest the wood for furniture, I get to pick up what they couldn’t use, which is perfect for us lathe artists…
