A beautiful walnut and koa coffee table.
Koa is found only on the Hawaiian Islands and is much prized for its beautiful iridescent wood that is reddish brown with dark black or brown lines. The great depth of figure makes it ideal for use in musical instruments, fine furniture and jewelry boxes.
American black walnut grows in the Eastern US and Canada. It is a popular domestic hardwood with a naturally dark color varying from a purplish brown to a rich red brown.
