When the animator behind the Omozoc YouTube channel combines new woodworking skills with their stop-motion expertise, a wood butter case is cut and shaped by a few kitchen utensils and some imagination.
The video took 30 days and 648 undoctored photos to complete. There is no CG used, only unseen woodworking tools and the wood of Japan’s katsura tree.
In the video below, Omozoc handcrafts an Agathis tissue box with their fingertips and some simple joinery… and 22 days of behind-the-scenes woodwork. The video is made with 791 undoctored photos.
