Hawaii Navy Hobby Shops


Arts and Crafts Center: Whether you enjoy woodworking, crafting, ceramics, pottery, painting, photography or scrapbooking, the MWR Arts & Crafts Center has supplies, work space, equipment and classes. There is a self-help wood shop, frame shop, and ceramics and pottery area. Kids can do pick-and-paint ceramics, and the on-site sales store has everything you need for your crafting projects. One little-known gem is the engraving shop where many of the base hail and farewell gifts are created. For more information, call the center at 808-448-9907.

Auto Skills Centers (ASC): Self-help customers can rent a stall to work on car repairs, tuneups, brake jobs, auto painting and more. The Hickam site offers the added service of free how-to classes and can perform oil changes. ASC offers two locations on Oahu — Hickam and Moanalua — and one location at Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF), Kauai (Mana Motors). These locations have trained mechanics on duty to assist if needed. Air tools, hand tools and bench tools are also available. A comprehensive library of repair manuals and a computer with Mitchell On-Demand are on-site to help you research any problem. ASC also offers drive-up services such as vehicle safety inspection, headlight adjustments and electrical diagnostics. If you’re going on deployment, Pearl Harbor offers secure storage for your vehicle. There are also three self-wash bays and two coin-operated vacuums at the Hickam ASC, and five self-serve car bays at the Moanalua Car Wash. Call Hickam ASC at 808-449-2554, Moanalua ASC at 808-471-9072 or PMRF Kauai ASC (Mana Motors) at 808-335-4439.
