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 select 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. The pieces are then 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.”

About the Wood:

“The heartwood is whitish to straw-yellow, and in some logs, it may be tinted with pale brown or pinkish streaks. The texture is medium to rather coarse, and the grain is straight to wavy, which produces a wide variety of figure patterns. The wood also has a very high luster.”1
