John Merritt Can Carve Almost Anything Out of a Single Piece of Wood

This video has been around for a bit but it was new to me. Woodcarver John Merrit carves just about anything you can imagine out of a single piece of wood. He doesn’t do it for money, just the challenge of creating insanely intricate pieces as gifts for his wife, friends, or simply a personal sense of achievement. As the video went on my jaw dropped at how nonchalantly he presents each increasingly amazing object with a sense of “oh yeah, this old thing”. (via the awesomer)
