Not matter how much amazing furniture I’ve seen (even the astounding engineering feats of Roentgen), I know that there is always something coming around the corner that will floor me once again. The most recent example? The watches of Ukrainian carpenter Valerii Danevych. He makes wrist and pocket watches entirely from wood, except for the steel spring used to drive the mechanicals. I know we’ve all seen big wooden gears and tall clocks with wooden mechanisms. That’s cool. But Danevych’s watches aren’t big. They’re the same size as many other wrist and pocket watches. That means he’s making tiny little wooden gears and stuff. Amazing. Now, if only we can get Danevych to make a watch for Flavor Flav to wear. That would be the ulitmate. Check out this story about him, which contains a video.

I think this definitely merits a back cover of FWW Magazine!
Thanks Matt. This truly blows my mind. I'm frequently amazed at the ingenuity of woodworkers, but this is in a realm all by itself. Now he just needs to make it water resistant.
You'd have to convince Flav to upgrade to a wooden grill. Yea BOYEEE!

Michael begins carving the saddle lid box with his ripple pattern along the top. Then turns to his 5/30 gouge to texture the sides of the box. This isn't work…
