Acacia koa is a species of flowering tree in the pea family, Fabaceae. It is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. Its name in the Hawaiian language, koa, also means brave, bold, fearless, or warrior. Koa is a large tree, typically attaining a height of 49–82 ft and a spread of 20–39 ft. In deep volcanic ash, a koa tree can reach a height of 98 ft, a circumference of 20 ft, and a spread of 125 ft.
Because woods vary greatly in color and figure yours may vary from the picture. It measures roughly 2" long by 1/4" wide and is hand buffed with a wax and shellac blend.
Curl is a feature of koa in which the growth of the wood fibers is distorted in an undulating chatoyant pattern, producing wavy lines known as curl. This effect is often mistakenly said to be part of the grain of the wood. However, it is more accurately called figure, as the distortion is perpendicular to the grain direction.
