About Michael & Nizo Natural Precision:  "Michael Nizo, is an artist in Hilo, originally from kekaha, kaua`i  who works with woods like birch, poplar, mahogany, and koa. Michael sells finely designed Hawaiian-themed laser-cut wood jewelry, fun educational puzzles, key chains, lamps, coasters, and ornaments mostly at craft fairs. He graduated in 2013 from Technology for Untapped Talent, where he learned computer-aided design and laser-cutting. He honed his skills at The Makery in Hilo. Michael now owns and operates his own business, Nizo Natural Precision. The name stems from his surname, Nizo, the fact that he works with only natural materials, and uses a laser so that each piece is cut with absolute precision. Michael goes into his studio in Pana‘ewa about three days a week to create and produce. 

This is Hawaii Mokupuni Puzzle

The traditional land divisions of pre-contact Hawaiians was based on the sustainability and self-reliance within community watershed areas (Ahupuaa) as well as within Bioregions (Moku) and lastly individual Sovereign Islands (Mokupuni).  These natural land divisions were the result of the flow of water over the land.
