Soothing Video Without Music or Comment Shows Master Carpenter at Work

By Casey Chan on at

Can you watch an episode of television that just follows the multiple-day process of making a chair from wood without any music? Without any commentary? As part of BBC Four Goes Slow series, we see just that.

It’s beautiful, ASMR-tingling, and so soothing to see tree trunks get chopped, wood being chopped down, and the quiet, still soundtrack of the furniture being put together.

This was aired as Handmade: Wood for BBC. It’s like being a fly on the wall.
