Here’s a good way to spend a day if you need to get away from it all: go to woods, chop down a tree, and then use the wood to make a stool. Not only have you successfully made something with your hands but you can now sit down and rest because you’re gonna be tired.

Adam Newport-Berra shot this video with Tom Bonamici and Derek Lasher of a trip to upstate New York and documented the entire process of turning an oak tree into a piece of furniture, all while in the woods. The soundtrack is just the sound of their work, which makes it so completely soothing.
