Roy Tsumoto has always worked with
wood. His parents owned Monkeypod
Center in Kapalama, Hawaii where he
learned the wood working process from
cutting the tree, to milling the lumber and
creating finished products.

Since 1983, he has been making jewelry
boxes and desk accessories which he sells
at craft fairs and to several galleries in
Hawaii. He tells everyone that working
with wood is his “therapy”.

Roy recently retired from the Department
of Education where he was a drafting
teacher at Radford High School, state
resource teacher and educational
specialist for Industrial Arts, and
education officer overseeing the Repair
and Maintenance Program.
