Default Ghostly woodworking

Here's an entertaining video of a wooden lawn chair building itself without any human intervention: The Ghostly Woodworker - Fine Woodworking

Love that video!

(Jokingly) What does the ghost get paid in? He would would handy around the shop.

Evolution of marriage between furniture making and photography. Frank's web site indicates that he was educated at Cornell and Harvard. Yet his documentary "behind the scene" shows a truly dedicated and humble teacher. Thanks for sharing, Oliver.

Yeah, what he said.

I am seldom envious, of anything, or anyone. But that shop almost had me drooling on my keyboard.
