Red maple (acer rubrum), also known as Swamp, Water, or Soft Maple, is one of the most common deciduous trees of eastern North America. Red maple is also used for the production of maple syrup although other maples are more commonly used. The red maple buds emerge much earlier in the spring than other maples and after sprouting, the chemical makeup of the sap changes imparting an undesirable flavor to the syrup. Red maple can only be tapped for syrup before the buds emerge, making the season very short.

Koa (Acacia Koa), is the best known endemic tree in Hawaii. The species exists naturally nowhere else in the world. It is recognized world wide for it's remarkable variety of grain figure which ranges from plain to curly to fiddleback. The colors can go from reds to chocolate browns, with the sapwood, sometimes, even a bleached white. It is the figuring that sets koa into a class by itself.
Chatoyancy is a property that is usually attributed to certain gems, the cats eye effect, or shimmer which gives the sense of depth in the gem. This effect can also be used to describe some of the more dramatic pieces of curly, tiger stripe, and fiddleback koa. This figuring gives the wood a three dimensional quality, and, depending on what angle you view the wood, it can take on several completely different characters.
Koa is currently on the endangered species register due to concerns about the habitat it provides for endangered native Hawaiian wildlife.
