Koa Wood Veneer

cat-koa-curly.jpgKoa is a fast growing tree native to Hawaii and because of excessive harvesting, now comes largely from dead or dying trees on private land. The color and grain patterns in these wood veneers are beautiful, so it is easy to understand why it is considered one of the forest's most prized trees for gems. The tree ordinarily grows to 50 feet tall but larger specimens have been found. These koa wood veneer sheets contain gorgeous colors and an incredible figure.

We now have access to this species in 4' x 8' paperbacked veneer.
