  • Koa

    $63.00$273.00

    Koa

    $63.00$273.00

    This Hawaiian wood shimmers like gold. Koa is one of my favorite woods. It’s also the material of choice for the traditional Hawaiian ocean going canoes since Koa is the largest endemic tree in Hawaii. Nowadays sizable trees demand a high price since the easily accessible Koa forests are being cleared for cattle grazing. This wood may become more scarce as time goes on, but for now there is still plenty of Koa around and it is not on the CITES list nor is it expected to be in the near future as Koa trees grow over an inch in diameter a year.

    Honduran Mahogany

    This is genuine Mahogany. There are many Mahoganies, but Honduran Mahogany is the real McCoy. This is the Mahogany by which all other are judged. Honduran Mahogany was widely exploited for its shimmering beauty and put on the CITES list and thus limiting its international export to certified sustainable resources.  As a result Honduran Mahogany is now grown on many plantations throughout Central America.

  • Hickory (Swamp)

    Hickory (Swamp)

    $27.00$103.00

    Hickory was an indispensable wood to the settlers. Its tough hard wood was and still is used extensively for tool handles and wheel spokes. President Andrew Jackson was even called “Old Hickory” because of his tough and aggressive personality. The Hickory tree actually covers 19 species of tree. The particular Hickory we use Texas Swamp Hickory. It grows in the swampy creek bottoms of my native East Texas and is a close relative of the Pecan. It’s often used as a smoking wood since it burns long and imparts a wonderful flavor to meat. The wood is a medium tan color with insect marks interspersed throughout. These markings giving Swamp Hickory a wonderful character.

Reds, oranges, browns, and contrasting dark stripes characterize this wood. This variation makes each set of dice extremely unique. While not a true rosewood, it’s often sold under the name Caribbean Rosewood due to its density and rosewood-like coloration.

    Chakte Viga

    $27.00$103.00

    Chakte Viga is a tropical wood that is sought for the unrivaled orange color tone that the heartwood is renowned for. Ranging in shades from light yellow/orange to a deep burnt orange with hints of red, Chakte Viga’s color will deepen with age and exposure. It has a buttery smooth texture when worked and is valued by jewelers for inlays since it can be shaped to fine detail and buffed to a glass like polish. Very fine texture with a closed grain, it sometimes displays an interlocked grain that creates figuring.
