Title: Cupped Koa wood, help me please!
Post by webdesigner on Aug 1st, 2005 at 6:52pm
Please help me ASAP.
I bought some 1/4" Koa wood from Hawaii and when I brought it home (CA) I noticed it was slightly cupped. It's very expensive as you know, what can I do to save it!? Wet one side and put heavy bricks on it?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Where can I buy Koa for making jewelry boxes, not cheap, but the best value? From Hawaii probably, but where?

yo gary..not to panic...let your wood get used to your area's weathjer conditions, so keep material flat and and use a weight to insure the flatness and just let it be. Most woods do tend to cup when left unattended.
