About the Artist

Tom Young is a member of The American Association of Woodturners and a charter member of the Honolulu Woodturners Club.  He is self-taught, beginning in 1990 to turn bowls from local Hawaiian woods and selected other species.

Tom’s bowls are typically about 1/8 inch thick.  The larger the diameter of the bowl, the thicker the walls.  The bowls are sanded with 1000 grit sandpaper, and finished with multiple coats of a Danish type oil.  After that the pieces are polished using Tripoli and White Diamond, and then finally coated with carnauba wax and buffed.

Artist Statement

“I consider my pieces artistic woodturnings as opposed to utilitarian.  They are thin, consistent throughout, and finely finished. The shape flows and does not have any abrupt changes in the curve. While some of the pieces may also be useful, they are made as a visual and tactile art form.  They are things to admire on a shelf, on the table, or in a collection. They are things to be picked up and caressed.”

Narra

Narra, (genus Pterocarpus) is a tree of the pea family. The heartwood can vary widely in color, ranging from a golden yellow to a reddish brown. Pale yellow sapwood is clearly demarcated from the heartwood. Quartersawn surfaces display ribbon-stripe figure, and the wood is also seen with mottled, beeswing, or curly figure. Narra burl is full of well-defined knot clusters, and the highly valued wood is known as Amboyna.
