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 Ottawa, Ontario.

I am a self-taught wood carver creating one-of-a-kind pieces, from spoons to jewelry.

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 carving knives, a saw, a hatchet, and salvaged or reclaimed wood.
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.
Let's chat,
get in touch with me.
