Bach & Roll Music: An Outdoor Project Like No Other

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.”

      then why did you take the time to even reply. as you can read, most of us truly enjoyed the piece. I admit, most or at least many of us would never attempt to duplicate it, but all those that I sent the link to enjoyed it. . .

    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.
