A traditional symbol of Christmas in North Carolina, this 12-point wooden Moravian star is a unique, handcrafted way to add a North Carolina touch to your holiday decor. Each 12"-diameter star is handcrafted in Raleigh by craftsman Harold Haun from repurposed materials and includes an attached nylon filament loop for hanging. Natural variations in the repurposed wood make each star unique in color and tone. 

Harold Haun has been involved with woodworking in some capacity since his high school days. A North Carolina native, he graduated from NC State University with degrees in Industrial Arts Education and taught at The Governor Morehead School for many years. Woodworking classes were popular with the students who produced a wide variety of projects. Since retiring in 2003, Haun has worked on house renovation projects, chair caning, basket weaving, and, of course, woodworking crafts.“I have always been intrigued by the Moravian star and the different designs and materials used to create them. I have seen stars made from metal, glass, paper, and even plastic, but never wood. I set about to change that. I built cardboard prototypes until I had a pleasing design. The next step was to develop jigs and fixtures to cut identical parts and to accurately cut the compound angles of the mating parts. The result is this unique wooden Moravian Star.”

Made in North Carolina.

Quality, handmade, environment friendly
This design successfully marries contemporary and vintage concepts. Love the new take of creating a 3D Moravian Star out of wood. Love it even more because the artist reclaimed the wood from old painted doorslats that have been stripped smooth to reveal the beauty of the natural wood. Each smooth slat is individually beautiful and the star is constructed in such a way that you will find it hard to believe this star ever existed beyond it's present state. My husband's comment when we opened the box- WOW! It now sets besides my vintage Nativity set where it complements the wooden stable . I will keep this star out all year to celebrate my family's heritage.
