The Artist

Nohea Gallery is proud to carry the work of Kyle Iwamoto, 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!

 

Norfolk Pine

Norfolk Pine was introduced to the Hawaiian islands originally by Captain Cook. The tree is endemic to Norfolk Island, a small island in the Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and New Caledonia. Cook noted the presence of large forests of tall, straight trees that appeared to be suitable for use as masts and yards for sailing ships.

It is a slow growing tree, reaching a height of 160–210 ft. Its trunk has straight vertical and symmetrical branches. Norfolk Pine is light brown, with red or yellow variations.  Norfolk Pine is a soft wood, making it easy to work with.
