At eight-minutes-plus, this production methods video is longer than the average internet denizen's 2.5-minute attention span, but anyone who makes things out of wood will find it fascinating. This unnamed Hungarian craftsperson shows you every step as he goes from felled tree to cutting board, and what's most interesting is the dedicated series of jigs, rigs and fixtures he's come up with to speed up his production, as well as the combination of machines he uses. Be sure to check out:
The fresh floor-embedded pneumatic lift he uses to get the logs up to the bandsaw at 1:20
His lath drying rack at 3:29 and spinning drying rack at 3:47
His beast of a router table with pneumatic clamp at 5:04
His simple drill press centering jig at 6:11
This crazy, dangerous-looking bevel-cutting contraption at 7:22 (anyone know what this thing is called?)
And no, it doesn't matter that it's narrated in Hungarian, the explanations are primarily visual.
