about me and The Lab

hello! thank you for touring my website.

Nasta Wood Lab is a small startup founded by myself, Adeeb Nasta, currently based in beautiful Banff, Alberta after moving from Ottawa, Ontario. I started teaching myself wood carving in the spring of 2020 and ever since, I have been practicing and slowly learning more and more about carving and wood.
Besides the Wood Lab, I'm a recent biology graduate, so I got to spend some time in other labs too.

Everything slows down when I hold my carving knives. Having something that always makes one feel present in the moment, in the place is very special.

For my work, I adopted a minimalistic approach by only using non-powered hand tools and salvaged, foraged for, or reclaimed soft and hard woods.
Nature and the outdoors play a major role in inspiring my carvings, since this is where I feel free and in the world.

know more about me and The Lab in my guest appearance on the Curiocity radio show on CKCU FM via this link; minutes 10-44.

Again, thank you for being here and for supporting my work whether that's by purchasing an item or telling friends and family about it.
You are very welcome to
get in touch with me anytime.
