Honolulu-born David Chung was raised in Moanalua Gardens and Kalihi. The son of a cabinetmaker, he grew up in a shop environment. He became an architect in 1973 and retired in December 2010. In 2002 he acquired a lathe and there was no turning back. Self-taught as a woodturner, what was a week-end pursuit of his acquired passion can now be undertaken full time. David’s shop is in a converted garage at his home in Kaneohe on the windward side of Oahu. Before woodturning, he started a line of wooden clocks sold in galleries and trade shows under the name ArchiClocks. David is a past President and an active member of the Honolulu Woodturners club and a member of the American Association of Woodturners.
About the name of this blog: Until my pre-teens, we lived in Moanalua Gardens, on the western outskirts of Honolulu. We had several Hawaiian families among our neighbors. The Hawaiian name for David is Kawika (say: ca vee ca), which is what I was often called while growing up. ‘ Huli’ means turn, or in verb form, to turn. No, the name is not a play on David “going Hollywood” ;-).
