Ka lā i ka Mauliola. – The sun at the source of life. (Mauil-ola the Breath of Life is the god and patron and source of health.)


NA HANA LIMA


There’s a guy that lives out back of beyond in Makaha somewheres: scavenges koa beams from old pallets used once upon a time to ship stuff from the Big Island (imagine—there was a time they used koa for pallets– that’s old wood!) Assembling these cuts into vanity pieces takes a knowing eye and a practiced hand. This is not the usual polyurethaned, prettyfied piece, but wood with age and distinction, wrought with dedication to eliciting the sublime qualities of vintage koa. Forget trying to find anything like it in town– if you want the genuine article, you gotta go Waianae, and ask nice.
