Your Monday Morning Dose of Crafting Zen

created at: 12/21/2015

For many of us, this is a big week. Start it off well with some serious inspiration.   I wish I could tell you more about this video and process, but my lack of German is limiting me. But I am seriously impressed with this guy’s chisel technique. Can you imagine how sharp that bevel must be and how much control he’s exerted to get shavings like that? They’re thin enough to accomplish in a single pass, but still thick enough to stand on their own and maintain that shape. Pretty amazing. 

This came out in 2012, so you may have already seen it. If not, you’ll be impressed. Even if it’s not to your taste, it’s always inspiring to watch a master craftsman at work.
