Keith Skretch has a interesting time-lapse video for us. He took a piece of wood, and planed it down to nothing. After each pass of the plane, he took a photo of the wood. Repeat the process a few hundred times, combine the frames and add music and you’re presented with the above video.
I like how it shows the knots of the tree, and how the tree grows around it, and the branch starts from nothing. The damage from splitting, and bugs, it’s a really neat video, and it’s only 2 minutes long, so just watch it.
