--  EARLE'S NEWEST WORK OF ART  --
It’s a new FAD   
It’s a Frustration Abatement Device!  
Rattle away your frustration with this unique milo paperweight — makes a perfect gift.


Art from Cradle to Grave

Think of wood for any occasion — truly the perfect "cradle-to-grave" gift.

Make it "art from the start" with a baby gift of an original work of art.  Or choose your own cremation urn while you are still alive to appreciate it.

Baby Rattles -These unique rattles have a mellow "rattle" and distinctive shape.


Cremation Urns-  Norfolk Island Pine wood is used to create beautiful urns which can easily house cremation ashes.  Purchase one as a piece of art for your home now and it will be ready to serve a new purpose when you pass on. Any size; even small sizes for pet remains.

STYLES
Earle's work has evolved from simple dishes and bowls, to oil lamps, covered urns, and whatever the wood dictates.

This section will continue to be updated as new designs are developed.


NEWEST PRODUCTS
These milo lamps come with both an oil reservoir with a life-time wick and a battery-operated flicker light (pictured here).  The bottom tier holds a book of matches.


CULTURAL PIECES

We are now producing ornamental poi pounders.

"I received this unique, handcrafted bowl as 
a graduation gift.  It sits proudly on my 
mantle for all to see.  I am amazed at how 
the knot on the bowl lines up with the knot 
on the cover.   Earle is a true artist.  
Thank you so much.       Jess T   Beverly, MA

Earle F. LONG
WOODturner 

Earle Long, a retired metal fabrication manufacturer from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, moved to Hauula, Hawaii, in the late 1980s.  

Impressed with beautiful grain patterns in local woods, he found that woodturning satisfied his need to produce items that are both good looking and serve a useful purpose.

He started by making bud vases and small bowls; eventually, he became proficient at creating unique designs in lamp bases and bowls.   

He makes artistic pieces from chunks of local woods such as milo, Norfolk Island pine, mango, kamani, koa, and has recently begun working with rubber tree, ohia, coconut, and tamarind woods.  He also combines recycled woods, which allows the turning to reveal unusual shapes in the finished product.

Mr. Long relishes the opportunity to turn a piece of wood into something that will “wow” his customers.
