Koa Office Desk/Table

This is a custom koa table. The top is made from book matched sets of koa, which is only available from Hawaii. The legs, skirts and moulding are all made from koa that I milled to 7/8" thickness. Each leg consists of 5 separate pieces and is made in various stages, then cut, split vertically and rejoined. This table and all legs was constructed without the use of any screws or nails.

A finish of a 3 part mixture over a 17 day period that is hand applied allows it to be used for many years and remain beautiful. The finish will never chip, peel, crack or flake.

I have made many pieces of furniture in koa and it remains my favorite.

Dimensions: Size and wood species can vary.
