Artist: Craig Mason
Title:Koa Wood Poi Pounder
Material: Koa Wood
Size: 4.5" wide x 8.5" tall
One-of-a-kind poi pounder, turned by Dr. Craig Mason. This Koa tree was on the Case property on Oahu's Mt. Tantalus.
Dr. Mason has been working with wood for more than 32 years, and uses only reclaimed wood...he never purchases wood or cuts down trees.
"Part of what I love about woodturning is that I can use a natural resource that has outlived its usefulness and would otherwise go to green waste, or worse, the landfill. We can save that resource from the waste stream and turn it into something beautiful. It is a wonderful "green" art.
Even the sawdust and shavings I create become mulch for friends and neighbors, or get composted into one of my planters. Every part gets used." Craig Mason
