There are woodworking projects and then there are amazing woodworking projects.

A couple weeks back a friend pointed me to a video and basically said “Just watch it. You won’t be disappointed.” Click here to watch the video. Well, I did watch and was awestruck. I had to watch a second time. A couple hours and a third viewing later, I went searching for more on this video and found a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video. Do yourself a favor and watch the “Making of” after seeing the original by clicking here.

It is a tribute to man’s creativity, ingenuity and a reminder that if you ever think you’ve come close to exploring most of the things you can do with a pile of wood, there’s surely something else to discover. Promise – even if you hate classical music you’ll love this rendition of Bach’s Cantata 147 or “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.”

    Unbelievable! Both the commercial and the “behind the scenes” videos are fantastic. I’m a Bach fan, too, so it was doubly amazing. What creativity.
