Hawai‘i’s Woodshow, Na La‘au o Hawai‘i is the Hawai‘i Forest Industry Association’s (HFIA) annual juried woodworking exhibition. See heirloom-quality works made from koa, mango, kamani, milo, Norfolk pine, macadamia nut, kiawe and other Hawai‘i-grown woods.
Hawai‘i’s Woodshow aims to encourage an appreciation for the participating artists and the materials they use. It promotes the positive role forests play in our economy and ecology. The show calls for the use of wood from Hawaiian-grown tree species, especially those that have been planted and brought to maturity here in Hawai‘i. It serves as a reference point for the planting of native and non-native high value hardwoods for future generations.
