The Hawaii Island Chain is an iconic symbol that one is bound to see if they have ever visited the state of Hawaii. A few have made pieces of art that resemble the chain, however, finding a set with a high level of detail and quality that is sold here may be another story. Each set is carved from solid Big Island grown hardwoods and features a significant amount of thought into each Hawaiian island. A heavy emphasis is placed on quality over quantity, moreover, your set will have an excellent finish which compliments the wood, and is applied with great care.
Every Hawaii island chain will include all the major islands of Hawaii : Hawaii’i, Maui, O’ahu, Kauai, Moloka’i, Lana’i, Ni’iau, and Kahoʻolawe.
Mango wood boasts wide variability in color, grain, and character–as you can see some of the sets are lighter, and others have deeper tones. Some pieces will be more orange, others a muted palette, and yet others feature more earthy tones. Each set will be different since wood is a natural product, however, every set has excellent sanding, finishing, and composition–it will look great, and flow well.
For finish options typically a slight amber oil-based sealer is used as it helps give Mango wood a bit of color and features a satin lacquer top-coat. The light amber sealer is shown in photos #1, #3, & #4. Moreover, if medium stain is desired then photo #2 or #5 may be of interest. The same stain will be used, however, exact color matches are impossible, and variances are to be expected due to the nature of wood artwork.
