The artwork featured here is but a small sampling of the works of John Capanna, wood artisan. Its quite apparent that they are not ordinary pieces of wood . At first glance it is obvious that they all have at least two things in common. They are all unique. And they all show the absolute beauty of nature shining through in each piece of wood. John uses a diverse selection of woods found all over the globe to make his beautiful creations.

*Many of the pieces in this portfolio are in the homes of his fans, but some may still be up for sale.

Please see the links menu above for the Store page that have pieces for you to purchase.

it’s an inside job!

About | John

the achievement of one’s full potential through creativity, independence, spontaneity, and a grasp of the real world.


The creative process usually starts with a simple piece of wood! From there it becomes what is already in the wood. Via woodturning, carving, etc. it becomes art. This artistic process is inspired through me. Or, it can also happen in a collaborative effort with a customer for custom works. Either way the beauty of the wood shines through!
