Woodworkers, in my opinion, are miraculous and a very special breed of artisan. They are a type of artisan that works with nature in a very real sense and I imagine that in order to work so closely with nature to create graceful beauty they must "tune in" to the wood they are working with and into nature as a whole in a way that most artisan crafts can't even come close to.
Today I would like to introduce you to Moon Sky Woodworks on Etsy. A shop ran by Nathan, whose talented hands craft a variety of beautiful woodwork items from pens to wine stoppers, pill boxes and so much more. His hand turned works are exquisite and he has a wide variety of them to share.
Nathan lives in a small, sleepy town in Maine and he draws his inspiration from the sense of simpler times he gets from the woods around his home. He tries to impart that sense into his work and designs, creating a wonderful variety of simple, elegant pieces in the process.
