The Artist

Nohea Gallery is proud to carry the work of Barry Wheeler, who is a member of the Honolulu Woodturners, with whom the gallery presents an annual show of works.

Your piece, which has a wax finish, requires minimal care. Enrich periodically with a paste wax, or a bee’s wax, by applying with a clean cloth, allow 10-15 minutes before buffing off with cloth. This will keep the wood beautiful and happy for years to come. Enjoy!

 

Milo

Milo means to twist, curl, or spin. This name is also used in the Marshall Islands and American Samoa.

The bark of milo was used for cordage fiber, similarly to hau, but it is inferior in quality to hau and to olona. The tree also yields tannin, dye, oil, medicine and gum, from various parts of the plant. The milo wood was skillfully crafted into poi bowls called `umeke `ai, and into plates, too. Milo wood is flavorless, since it is lacking in any unpleasant-tasting sap that could contaminate stored food.
