Wood identification
#6
  
I picked up some boards on Hawaii about 10 years ago.
Unfortunately I have completely forgotten what wood this is. Crazy
The markings are: MOCP-4
Any help in identifying this wood would be appreciated, thanks!

Im sure the common off this hip answer people will say is Koa.

But its Monkey Pod

Once Favre hangs it up though, it years of cellar dwelling for the Pack. (Geoff 12-18-07)

Yeah, I looked at Koa, but too expensive.
Monkey Pod makes sense, thanks!

Agree with Monkey Pod. I do a good amount with Koa and the grain on that board doesn’t look right for koa but both grain and color both suggest monkey pod.
