Carving a Wooden Chain from One Block of Wood with Power Tools

By Casey Chan on at

This is a really cool woodworking project from Matthias Wandel: turning a single piece of wood into a chain, using just power tools.

It takes very careful planning and specific carving to transform the block of wood into links on a chain, but Wandel shows us his entire process in detail. The end result is really fun because you still can’t believe how he made that (even though you saw him make it).
