4 hours of woodworking in under 4 minutes

4 hours of woodworking in under 4 minutes
A timelapse video of me woodworking in my basement workshop.
See if you notice something odd while I’m working in my shop 🙂

This project took a lot of work and time, but it would have taken much longer without my festool domino and the lock miter router bit.

I used my hero3 gopro to capture images at 1 photo every 2 seconds. This is over a period of several weeks while making 8 wood pedestals for a small art gallery.
The pedestals were built from rough sawn lumber direct from a local saw mill.
The final number of images captured was over 67000. Roughly 35 hours of real time images.
I used sony vegas to edit the frames and whittle the footage down to main steps involved in the woodworking process.
The timelapse playback is 60 times actual speed.

  1. Brave man to repeatedly put your left hand so close to the table saw blade when cutting the pieces. Otherwise a great video – thanks for making it 4 minutes instead of 4 hours.

  2. yeah he said in the description he did it over few weeks and just took bits out of all the video clips to make this one great video I'm looking to do a times lapse video for my youtube channel when I start up soon got few things on my instergram if anyone wants to check it out the name is woodwizard87. cheers

  3. I'm going to take a wild guess that one of your most useful tools isn't the dust collector? Seriously though, wtf is wrong with your dust collector?

  4. Thanks for the video content! Forgive me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you researched – Mahorrla Wooden Paradise Method (probably on Google)? It is a good one of a kind guide for building better sheds and woodworking minus the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my cousin at very last got great success with it.

  5. I only saw u used 1 festool.how did that saved u time. Change the title its annoying

  6. Enjoyed the video. I so much want a domino tool. For this job I would have used lock miter joints including the top so to avoid any end grain and give it a solid wood block look. I gave you a thumbs up for the great video.
