  1. Beautiful wood turnings!! would you happen to have any small koa bowls with lids for sale or milo turning blanks…thank you for any assistance or referrals to other possible resources tg

  2. Your wonderful photos and great text made me think of our trees. There two kamani trees on the grounds of ‘Iolani Palace between the Bandstand and fence on the ‘ewa side of the grounds. The makai tree is a true Kamani, the mauka tree a false kamani.

  3. Just turned a vessel out of true Kamani. Beautiful wood and very unique grain patterns.

  4. I have growing in a large pot a False Kamani , for 8 years now. Found the walnut shaped seed the last time i visited the Big Island , brought it back home stuck it in a pot and has been growing since and is alive a well on Long Island N.Y. I do bring indoors in the winter.
