Japan-based woodcraft studio Long Tail creates kawaii (cute) animal designs by combining different colors of wood. Jazz plays in the background as the crafter sketches, glues, cuts, sands, and seals a sweet sparrow necklace in this three-minute video.
“Her round cheeks and checkered feathers are her charm points. When paired with an embroidered dress… it looks like a cute sparrow strolling through the fields.”
