This tree is one of my favorite species for a lot of reasons. Not the least of which is that it’s suitable for anything and it’s always gorgeous!!


The pieces above are pretty good size bowl blanks. If they’re a bit much, you might be happier with one of the smaller pieces in the pic below.

Red Mahoe takes so well to the knife. It doesn’t much matter if your talking about a gouge, a skew, a carving tool, or a planer blade. It’ll cut easily in any direction without tearing. Even though the wood’s well figured, uniform pressure will give you a uniform cut.

These trees will grow right down on the shoreline. They’re so hearty it’s scary. They’ll root too .

The pieces below are smaller still. Pretty good for a miniature something or other.

A price list that corresponds to the numbered pieces in these pics is available for all this stuff, just Email me and I’ll be happy to send out a spec sheet.
