Wonderful, inspiring video. I never really thought about how much joinery is involved in making a ‘mere’ window… and what I especially enjoyed was the moment when the narrator said that no glue was used. Makes sense. Strange that seeing a wood plug carved and cut off could be so satisfying! I’m a beginning woodworker hobbyist. I guess passion makes the otherwise everyday seem magical. :-)
