Love that chair! But, the video production was absolutely mesmerizing.
This is the second one of Frank’s productions I’ve seen.
I’m still working on training my bench brush.

The chair is very nice and unusual but the video is a work of art and a fine promotional tool.

That was SO COOL!

I got reminded about a few things of yesteryear that I had forgotten about…
... like popping a string line is STILL a good way of marking a nice STRAIGHT LINE! LOL
... the Circular saw is very handier too…

Those were COOL hinges, round & square, the way he used them to wrap-up the assembly.

I think I would have used the thickness planer on a larger piece first before cutting it into smaller pieces rather than cutting & planing the smaller pieces…

I wonder how he made the movies… I picture him actually making a series of videos of him in action, cutting & moving back out of the frame, stepping back in for more of a cut, stepping back out, etc. until part was cut… end of that short video… Using the same approach on the rest of the Build.

Then, hours of editing… video by video… deleting each frame where he was in the picture, leaving a magic video remaining. Then, of course putting all of the edited videos together.

Anyone have ideas as to how he did it?

Thank you GMman… nice find… was fun watching it…

Enjoy…

Joe,
At the end of the video, there is a link to the ‘making of’ the video. Very cool!

I would love to know how long it took him to do it!

Well done GMman!

Thank you!

It was almost the way I envisioned it, except he did it with STILL pictures!
... I would’ve liked to see how he actually developed the video after he took all of the Stills…

That camera was a DREAM camera… to have… but, for me, just a dream… w/o any reality… :(

Great production!
