    Default Mesmerizing video of precision work

    Being someone who battles to work with small things, I found this rather interesting.

    He has abundance of all these:
    • Skill
    • Patience
    • Experience
    • Tools

    I wonder what the ratio of actual time vs video length is?
    I would say at least 10 minutes of actual time for each video minute.

    Just gone to his Youtube channel, amazing works of brilliance and very well videographed. (and it seems he is in a wheelchair, hence the inspirational music and tones)

    I see now that the video posted here has had 34 million views, the guy Pablo has 1,5 million followers on youtube. Average guy like myself really has no comprehension of how large those figures are! Truly an amazing post on the forum.

    Magic, this guy is super skilled.

    I only have one question, what do you call this? Skill? Craft? Artisan? Artist?

    This guy has all the skills to create from nothing and must have spent a long tome in acquiring the special skilset for this craft and, believe me, without the eye and imagination of an artist he would be nothing.

    All of the above, I'd say, summed up as Master Craftsman.
