    Time To Go Wood | JORD WATCH

    jord wood watch review, koa wood watch, why is koa wood expensive, what is koa wood
    sent for feature consideration
    Koa wood is endemic to Hawaii which makes it valuable, pricey and sought-after. Thankfully, my mother-in-law has amassed a good amount of koa wood furnitures back in the day which she generously passed on to us. They were and will continue to be statement pieces; for  every carving, grain and texture, each has a story, forever etched in one's memory.
