About the Artist

John Berthiaume is a woodworker who moved to Hawai’i from his home state of Michigan in 1978. While taking advantage of the many beautiful types of wood available in Hawai’i, he has developed his passion and talent for woodworking. He specializes in designing and crafting jewelry boxes, bowls and furniture from locally sourced wood.

Cedar

The Cedars you can find in Hawai’i are known as Bermuda Cedar or Juniperus bermudiana. Historically, this tree formed woodland that covered much of Bermuda. The Cedar was used for many purposes including building construction and was especially prized for shipbuilding. The Bermuda cedar is an evergreen tree growing up to 15 m tall with a trunk up to 60 cm thick and thin bark that exfoliates in strips.

The species is occasionally grown as an ornamental tree outside of Bermuda, and may have become naturalised on Hawaii and Saint Helena. It is reported that more than 6,500 of them were planted in Hawaii between 1921 and 1953, and that it has established wild populations here.
