Jorma Winkler has been slicing Hawaiian Koa and other exotic Hawaiian hardwoods such as Mango, Ohia, Milo, Kamani, Toon, Bloodwood and Sugi (Japanese Cedar) since 2003. Through Jorma’s Japanese company, Maikai Wood Hawaii, located in Aichi prefecture, Japan, we are able so supply raw veneers in large quantities for shipping worldwide.

We also manufacture paperback veneers and stock a healthy supply of koa, mango, and ohia in our warehouse in Kapolei. Special, custom layup orders are possible on various substrates, but generally paperback veneers are our specialty.  We also have been supplying a large number of specialty “fleece” (super thin very special Japanese paper) backing for the watch, iphone cover and even cap industry.

They roll up and ship easily around the world.  We use Polybak 20 and 10 mil pre-sanded paper made in the US.  Our raw veneers supplied are sliced to typical European and US thicknesses approximately 0.50 – 0.60 mm.
