Video: Handmaking a wooden chair without music and commentary is calming

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 sawed 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.

What is the likelihood of someone making a decent living from woodworking? Not a “I’m making 6 figures” living, but a comfortable living wage.

Obviously I’m assuming they’re decently skilled, artistic, and capable.
