 Oahu craftsman Carl Sherry was born and raised in Manoa Valley on the island of Oahu, and attended Honolulu Community College. He spent his adult life working to help others through job training and workforce training.  Many people remember him with aloha for his support and kokua. Nohea Gallery is honored to share his work with you.

 

Carl is dedicated to providing quality woodturnings of beautiful Hawaiian woods, and is especially known for his extraordinarily fine finish.  These beautiful curly koa wood pens Carl has created for R&C Hawaii Tours are made of the finest koa and were painstakingly handcrafted by Carl in his woodturning studio.

 

Curly koa wood is especially rare as it only occurs in a small number of the trees. This wood is native to the Hawaiian Islands and is found only here. The ancient Hawaiians made surfboards and canoes from this strong straight wood. It is for these qualities that the word koa means warrior in Hawaiian.

 

His first wood project was a Koa rocking chair, but when Carl noticed that people were asking for the cast-off curly wood from projects to make pens, he too learned to turn pens on a lathe.

 

In order to get the satiny finish on his pens, Carl uses a sanding sealer, then sands the piece to 220 grit.  Hand sanding follows, using from 120 to up to 2000 grit paper.  A coat of Polyurethane/Penetrol is applied between grits, and finally the pen is buffed with Tripoli, White Diamond and Carnuba Wax.

Your pen takes a Cross brand ballpoint refill. To care for your pen by Carl Sherry, keep it out of bright sunlight and water for many years of enjoyment.
