specials: koa boards (non-lutherie offcuts)

Yep, we have plenty of koa offcuts. These boards are too narrow or short for lutherie or have characteristics not suitable for musical-instrument construction. USA shipping only, please. Three options:

1. Box o'koa. Lower-grade koa boards suitable for box making, furniture-cabinet accents, picture frames, or other small projects. Some have curl, some don't, but all are too nice to cut into pen blanks. We won't be able to send photos, but let us know what you are making and we'll try to pick wood to suit your need. 10 lbs for $35 plus $15 shipping to any USA zip code.

2. Bowl blanks. Please inquire with your dimensions and whether select or curly koa. We have a good stock.

3. Knife and spindle blanks, and higher grade koa offcuts. Check the gallery below. Or let us know your needs.
