Welcome to Adrian’s Woods! I love to create functional and decorative items form a wide variety of woods. Each piece of wood is unique and though the website is constantly updated please contact me directly with any orders or inquiries.

Whether you’re looking for a special item to enhance your home or wanting to make someone’s present as memorable as your friendship, my hand-crafted work can be the answer.

Wooden Memories – Is there a special tree that you once played in or met your sweetheart under? Is it being cut down or trimmed? Salvage a portion of that special tree, fencepost, or other turnable material, and I can create a custom, hand-crafted memento to give your memories life again. Something that you can enjoy using or viewing every single day.

Meet the Artist

Adrian Stanciu has been using his architectural design background to create wooden works of art for the past 25 years.

Wood gives him the opportunity to combine art, creativity, and construction, while releasing the unique beauty only mother nature can create.  Recognizing the environmental impact of deforestation, Adrian strives to utilize salvaged wood whenever possible.  Most of his larger turnings (bowls, vases, and hollow forms) come from trees that are dead or diseased and would otherwise be destined for the fireplace. He finds special joy rescuing these woods, giving the trees a second life, and allowing numerous individuals to appreciate the inner beauty for countless years to come.  To further the conservation goal, nested bowls are actually cored from a single piece of wood, resulting in additional bowls rather than shavings.  With wood’s natural variations, a lifetime of work won’t come close to exhausting the endless possibilities. Though some of the shapes may be recreated, due to the uniqueness of the material, no two wood pieces are the same.

My work has been featured in several stores and galleries in Colorado, including Denver, Pueblo, Manitou and Colorado Springs.  Having recently moved to Oregon, my work is now featured in some new locations – Cannon Beach Gallery, Angi D Wildt Gallery, Trail’s End Gallery, Crafted in Seaside, and the Bold Gallery. If you are interested in something that you don’t see, has already been sold, or in the Gallery of Previous Work, please feel free to contact me.
