So a talented guy named Daniel Nelson likes to create amazing art pieces and furniture out of wood, and sometimes epoxy. Daniel once lived in Vancouver, Canada before he decided he wanted to be closer to nature and be inspired by it, so he packed his bags and moved to Kootenays where he found his peace, and much more.

Being surrounded by trees and water for so long gave him the inspiration to start creating his art, furniture design, unique tables and even this cool wood and epoxy skateboard you see below. Daniel works with clients to create one of a kind pieces that look so good they should be placed in art galleries for people to see and admire. But until this happens, we decided to feature his work here on The Awesome Daily.

The below photos are of a unique project he worked on, a skateboard made from wood and epoxy, the creative thought and execution of this item is what got our attention and we immediately decided to share it with our readers. More info: Instagram

Daniel uses wood he milled with his own two hands to create his pieces

He then uses a special process to clean the wood and make it to the shape he desire

After that he covers the wood in epoxy to fill in the spaces and create the final shape of the item
