Sorry for the double post (different header), but I leave Sat 3:30 AM...

Any recommendations for a source of Koa that might also ship some back to
Florida for me?
I'll be in Maui for a week and am serious about buying some of that gorgeous
wood for an as yet unknown project (or two).
I know Jo4hn is somewhat familiar with Hawaii, anyone else?
Don't know about Maui, but my father who lives on Oahu makes trips to
the Big Island (Hawaii) to buy a guy who has his sawmill there. I'll

Thanks for the replies, Jo4hn...
The hardest part to swallow is THEY"RE BUYING! I believe that even the
airfare will be reimbursed <VBG>
Last year it was Mexico, that was nice... going back to the islands after
thirty seven years is SUPER!
I was stationed in Pearl Harbor '65-'67.
SWMBO wants to re-visit Oahu, but for some reason I'd prefer going to one of
the islands we haven't seen before (she was married to a Marine at Kaneohe

Unfortunately it didn't list any koa sources on Maui...only Oahu and
the Big Island.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for all the posts, y'all... I'll be thinking of ya' (won't be
bringing a 'puter to drop in).
based on one of your posts I don't know how much Koa I'll be able to afford
to buy (and ship), but I'll be dam*ed if I'll get that close with out buying
at least <one> decent board!
BTW... anyone figure out how to filter dizum from OE?
