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 some of 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.

Poinciana

The wood commonly known as Royal Poinciana is known to botanists as Delonix regia.

Poinciana is endemic to the Madagascar’s dry deciduous forests, but has been introduced into tropical and sub-tropical regions worldwide. In the wild it is endangered, but it is widely cultivated elsewhere and is regarded as naturalised in many of the locations where it is grown It also readily grows in the Caribbean island territories and in the Pacific island territories as well. In fact, it is the official flower of the Northern Mariana Islands.
