Mike's Curly Koa Box

>arrived on my wife's birthday, and she got another surprise gift. It sits proudly in a corner of our vanity counter and has a functional use as a container for her earrings. My dream was fulfilled. When Mike posted this box in WOW, a notable big island turner said it was unfortunate that it wasn't a better piece of Koa. There is always a better piece of wood, but outstanding curly Koa is becoming harder and harder to find. To Mike's credit, curly Koa is a very difficult wood to control tear-out, and he did an outstanding job. Just wait until he gets to some of the wood I sent...
