THe Hawaii WoodShow is our flag ship, showcasing the best in art and artifacts made from local forest products. This is a Gallery of picture of the award winning pieces in our past shows. The pictures are taken by ©Hal Lum, photographer, if not noted otherwise.
Juried by a panel of locally- and nationally-known artists and design professionals, the HFIA WoodShow, Na La‘au o Hawai‘i, highlights the best in Hawai'i woodworking.
Although many residents and visitors are familiar with koa, a stunning and unique wood found only in Hawai‘i, there are dozens of trees which grow well in the Islands and which offer a fantastic variety in color and figure.
The HFIA WoodShow was created to promote an appreciation of these woods, as well as to encourage the use of conservative woodworking techniques such as veneering, which can make the most effective use of wood which may be in limited supply. Pieces entered in the WoodShow must be made predominantly from locally grown woods, and certain rare or endangered species are not allowed.
This compilation of photos was made possible through grants from the Hawaii Department of Agriculture and the Hawaii County Department of Research and Development. Mahalo to Mats Fogelvik for volunteering his time to plan and design the site.
Some of the show years have not yet any pictures added, this is a work in progress, many captions are still missing, check back later.....
