Monthly featured Artist

David Chung

Born and raised on Oahu, David is a retired architect who found the world of woodturning in 2003. His father was a carpenter and cabinet maker, so David grew up in a woodworking shop.

Always one to learn and give back that learning, David is the consummate WoWie. His dedication to the Hawaiian form leads him to teach it and put it forth as a cultural aspect of the island state he is from. He has hosted many a visiting demonstrator in his home. Very active in the Honolulu club, he enjoys the nuts and bolts of the learning experience. It is always a joy to have David post new work on WoW. He is easy to spot in a crowd, by the way. As he says, “just look for a Chinese Santa Claus.”

This month WoW is pleased to honor David Chung of Kaneohe, Oahu.

The World of Woodturners site (WoW) originated in November, 2001. At its start it was the only interactive site where woodturners could post photos and descriptions of their work and engage in discussion about their art. WoW members think of themselves as a family. They are artists who have become friends and who willingly share their talents and skills. This is a place where the novice freely mixes with the seasoned professional in an atmosphere of shared respect. No one is anonymous and everyone uses their own name. From this venue has arisen some incredible art, some of which can be seen in the public gallery. Enjoy this display of fine work. Access to the site itself is at no cost, by obtaining a membership invitation from an existing WoW family member or contacting site administration at Include your name and a brief description of your woodturning experience in the message.

The site is owned and maintained by the World of Woodturners, Inc., a non-profit organization.

Site design and hosting is a partnership between Webenology, LLC and Informanix Technology Group Inc.
