About the Urn

Thank you for considering these Hawaiian Koa urns. As they are in the shop for sale as well as available online here, we sometimes run low on urns on hand unexpectedly. Please send an email us with your required date. It does take us a day to pack and that is not always reflected in the USPS or UPS date range.
The wood used to make these urns is  solid Hawaiian koa, found only in the Hawaiian Islands.
Custom engraved koa plaques are available for text or images as well. Each urn is built to make the most of the piece of koa the craftsman is using, so there are some small variations in size.

The bottom is attached with four removable screws.  To take the bottom off, unscrew three of the four screws completely and one partially.  Lift the bottom off using the partially attached screw.

Koa

“Koa is the largest endemic tree in Hawai‘i–the species exists naturally nowhere else in the world. It is the fastest growing of Hawaii’s valuable hardwoods. Koa was historically the material of choice for carved ocean-going canoes. Koa wood is the most prized cabinet and furniture wood in Hawai‘i. Colors range from light brown to deep red/brown hues. Highly figured koa is sought after for use in fine furniture, musical instruments, crafts, gunstocks, and knife handles. Koa has weight and strength properties similar to black walnut. It is a moderately heavy wood (specific gravity .55). It is stable, works well, and takes an exceptionally rich, deeply reflective glow when finished with oils and modern varnish or laquer.” 1

Reforestation efforts are ongoing on the Big Island and on Maui, to recover the species from the devastation caused by clear-cutting for ranching and more recently, invasive forest animals.

 

 The urns vary slightly from one to the other. All pictures are representative!

Dimensions in the additional information tab are the approximate size when packed for shipment.

Thank you for considering this koa urn for your loved one. Aloha.
