“Lefty Rules”, by R.W. Rollo Scheurenbrand, won the Masters Award of Distinction at Hawaii’s Woodshow.

The 2020 Hawaii’s Woodshow, Na La’au o Hawai’i, the Hawaii Forest Industry Association’s (HFIA) 28th annual juried woodworking exhibition, took place Oct. 25-Nov. 8 at the Hawaii Opera Plaza in Honolulu. Show management allowed the public to visit through reserved timeslots to limit capacity within the building due to Covid-19.

The show calls for the use of Hawaiian woods, especially those that have been planted and brought to maturity in the 50th state. It serves as a reference point for the planting of native and non-native high value hardwoods for future generations.

Kahi Ching, a sculptor, won the Best of Show. Furniture makers Tai Lake and Michael Felig also earned top honors.
