About the Artist:

Craig Mason, Hawai‘i Woodturner, learned to love forests, trees and working with wood at an early age.  He was introduced to woodturning as a teenager in school wood shop classes.  All of those interests were put on hold for several decades while he finished school, served in the United States Navy, started a private dental practice, and raised a family. Over the years, working exclusively with trees salvaged from the waste stream, he developed skills in woodturning, carving and building musical instruments. The Hawaiian calabash, with its flowing curves, is his favorite form.

About the Wood:

Macadamias are large, spreading evergreen trees reaching 30 to 40 ft. high and almost as wide. More upright types are known and being selected because of their suitability for closer planting.
The bark is rough, brown and dark red when cut.
The Macadamia was introduced into Hawaii about 1881 where it was used as an ornamental tree and for reforestation purposes.
The Hawaii Agricultural Experiment Station named and introduced several promising selections in 1948, which led to the modern Macadamia industry in Hawaii. In California two seedling Macadamias were planted in the early 1880’s and are still standing on the Berkeley campus of the University of California. The importation of improved and named varieties into California from Hawaii began about 1950.1
