Nathan Favors spent much of his life running his own landscaping and tree removal business with the help of his six sons. Through the years Nathan was exposed to a large variety of tree species and gained a huge amount of respect to nature and all its beauty. This also instilled in his mind a desire to find a way to preserve this beauty, not just destroy it. In 2000, Nathan came across the opportunity to visit a woodturners’ exhibit. After witnesses this ancient art form he saw how this was a way to see his dream of transforming trees that he had grown to love into works of art that he could share with the world. From there, Nathan embarked on a journey to master this ancient craft. Through observing methods of lathe work and through trial and error, Nathan taught himself the craft and hasn’t looked back since.
