Hawaiian Silk Oak is an evergreen tree that grows in sunny areas, such as open forests and pastures. The heartwood is lace figured and is prized in furniture, handle and artistic applications. It is easy to work, sand and machine. This wood works well in handle applications and has beautiful grain and figure when finished. Try some on your next handle project.
Take precaution to wear gloves and a respirator when sanding this wood, as the sawdust can irritate the nose and skin of some people. Once sanded, it can be buffed to a nice luster.
