Check out this video, can’t believe that he did that without it blowing up!

WOW! is about all I can say. Amazing. Of course they took hours of work and compressed it into 3 minutes for us so we wouldn’t be bored.

Thanks for the video. He got a very nice result. I’m not sure why you think he might blow it up. It was wet wood which is pretty flexible, and he was careful with the thickness. I like the way he removed that center spigot.

Okay! That’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. I’d be terrified to try something like that. It just goes to show that true craftsmanship is developed through years of experience.

Very cool, but I think I’ll try a smaller one first.
