Default In Hawaii

I am in Hawaii for a few days and thought I would look to see if we have any active Penturners - I looked through the member directory and found 65 registered members - however it doesn't appear that any of them are active - does anyone know of any Penturners or locations in Oahu, Hawaii I should visit?

I don't know about any pen turners in the area, but if you want some wood, you might try Re-Use Hawaii at 200 Keawe St. in Kakaako - just a couple of blocks west of Ala Moana Blvd. They are open 7 days a week from 9-5. They also have a lot of used hardware in addition to various reclaimed wood.

There is also a Woodcraft store near Re-Use Hawaii, but their wood is really expensive. However, there might be some turners there or they might know of some.

Winkler used to have a walk-in store in that general vicinity as well with a nice variety of woods, but they have relocated since the beginning of the year and are now an on-line only store.

There is usually a vendor at the Aloha Stadium swap meet (Wed, Sat & Sun) that has Koa wood for sale at reasonable prices. They aren't always in the same location, so you just have to walk around and look for a box of wood near the entrance of their booth.

You could also contact Lau Lau Woodworks in Honolulu. He sells pens kits and might know someone near you.

(I knew about Lau Lau also but could not think of the name when I was posting :( )

There are also at least a couple of eBay pen blank/wood vendors based in the Honolulu area, and possibly one or two elsewhere in HI. But I can't think of their names right now.

Joel Lawson (joelinhawaii) has a wide variety of awesome wood, but he's on the Big Island. His sawmill is on my must visit list if I ever get to make a trip to the Big Island.

I moved from Hawaii (Kauai) to Oregon one year ago , IOT to support my aging dad. This after living about forty years combined on Oahu, Big Island and Kauai. Just reading this thread spurred a bit of a homesick response. I am unable to help with your request for info WRT Oahu, but hope you can make some connections while there.
