help me ID a furnituremaker in Hawaii4/8
I have been asked to repair a couple of tables. they were made about a decade ago. they have koa veneer tops that are having a problem. I need information about how they were made- what adhesives were used, what substrate is under the veneer and what the finish is. the owner bought them from a gallery on the island. perhaps someone here would recognize the work or the signature.
Oh! That guy? Good luck.
Thanks for sharing a interesting post with us.It is really cheaper than making an art project out of it.
I would agree that a successful repair is highly unlikely. Price a new top for the customer and do it right.
Just another reason to never sign one's work - they might be able to track you down.
Does the owner of the table remember which gallery on island they bought the table from? The Gallery should have information on the woodworker. Based on the top photo, he lives in Kona on the Big Island. You could check with the Hawaii Wood Guild, he might be a member.
