HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

(HawaiiNewsNow) - The Hawaii Forest Industry Association (HFIA) 21st Annual Hawaii's Woodshow is scheduled for September 1-15 at the Honolulu Museum of Art School at Linekona. The free exhibition is open to the public from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.

Renowned woodworker and talented artist Paul Schurch, will serve as one of the jurors at this year's show. Joining him will be award-winning studio furniture designer and former Hawaii's Woodshow coordinator Marian Yasuda and Norman G. Y. Hong, an award-winning member of the American Institute of Architects and CEO at Group 70 International.

The three jurors will select winners in various categories including professional and student divisions from among dozens of entries showcasing the versatility and beauty of Hawaii woods. The exhibition features breathtaking heirloom-quality works of furniture, woodturning, sculpture and musical instruments made from Acacia koa, Mango, Kamani, Milo, Norfolk pine, macadamia nut, Kiawe and other Hawaii-grown woods.

This year there will be a unique display of young-growth koa pieces by Hawaii Island woodworkers as part of the Young-Growth Koa Wood Quality Assessment and Demonstration Project, which gathered data and information on the potential value of koa wood before it reaches maturity.
