This video is so incredible, and there is something weirdly soothing about watching a bunch of hand tools be used. Maybe it's the lack of roaring motors and whirring drills, but I love listening to the soft scrape of wood!

I had no idea what a capstan was initially, but it's incredible to think of the amount of work that goes into such a simple device when it's made by human hands and basic tools.

Yep, sure was! I really like the way he produced it, beautiful, great shots, and such a calming experience.
