I’ve been turning for just under a year now. Still learning and getting the technique. This was my first attempt using inlay material. I was on vacation in Hawaii this year and my wife spotted a sign that said Aloha Woods so I had to go. I ordered a bunch of wood and had it shipped back. This was a bowl blank of Koa (Beautiful wood) that I think turned out rather well. It is 6” W x 3 1/4 H.

Where at in Hawaii was Aloha Woods? I might be going there next year. Would love to get more Koa.

Aloha Woods was very close to the airport on the Big Island

Your bowl came out really beautiful. Like the gorgeous Koa and the inlay is a great accent. Great job!

Have your say...
