About the Artist

Eric LeBuse is an award-winning Oahu woodturner, specializing in exotic Hawaiian woods. An active member of the Honolulu Woodturners, Eric gives demonstrations in woodturning throughout the year and mentors emerging turning enthusiasts.

His work includes natural-edge pieces, traditional wooden bowls and other pieces of art.  A sculptor of wood, Eric takes inspiration from his father, who was a professional sculptor.


Kolohala wood is Hawaiian pheasantwood, grown in the Hawaiian islands. It is  so named for the wood’s resemblance to the coloration and patterns found on the tail-feathers of pheasants. Pheasantwood exhibits the most figure on flatsawn sections of wood.The heartwood is a medium to dark brown, to nearly black, with ligher brown contrasting stripes, sometimes with a red or yellow hue. The striping is due to very wide parenchyma bands. The stripes of the pheasantwood tend to be light and with contrast, especially once a finish has been applied. Pheasant wood is a very close color and grain match to Desert Ironwood. It is excellent for fine articles such as boxes, pens, and more.
