About the Artist

Roger Hirlinger’s early experiences were as a carpenter and cabinet maker. He didn’t become interested in woodturning until about 12 years ago. Once he started turning, he was hooked and has been an avid turner ever since. Having a well-equipped shop in the back of his Mililani home allows him to prepare,turn and finish bowls without leaving the comfort of home.

Owning a fairly large Powermatic lathe lets him turn projects up to 20 inches in diameter. He prefers turning large bowls and hollow forms. The ability to turn wood that would otherwise be thrown in the landfill into useful objects and art is very fulfilling.

The variety of local woods provides a steady source of material to turn. Lychee, Norfolk Pine and Mango are someof his favorite woods. Most recently he has become interested in wood burning as a way to add visual interest to some of the less figured (bland) woods. Having recently retired he is looking forward to spending eve more time at the lathe.

Mango

Native to South Asia many varieties of Mangoes grow in Hawaii and are well loved for their fruit as well as the trees’ beautiful wood. Mango wood is categorized as hardwood because of its strength, density, attractive looks and of course durability that allows it not to wear out quickly and keep their high luster texture for many years. … Mango’s hardwood consists of very dense grain that is durable, strong and not too hard on tools during woodworking.
