Camera technology has come a very long way since World War I, though a lens is generally still just a lens.

It Was Supposed to Be a Vase

Woodworker Matt Jordan shares an immensely satisfying woodturning video, in which he transforms a lumpy hunk of apple tree trunk into a beautiful work of functional art – though the final piece wasn’t exactly what he planned to make. The fillers are a mix of blue mica dust and ground coffee.

Rocksete Retro Keyboard

Rocksete Retro Keyboard

Another retro keyboard from the makers of the Rymek has a design inspired by classic typewriters, with an art deco body, glossy finishes, and round keycaps. It also packs in a pair of JBL speakers, and has a built-in stand for holding a tablet. It’s still in the pre-pre-order stage, so we’re not sure when it will be available to purchase.

Signal

Signal

We just want to bottle up and drink the warm and dreamy visuals in filmmaker Hwang ji – lee’s animated short film. We can think of no greater application of the phrase “every frame a painting” than to this beautiful and captivating clip of otherwise mundane subject matter.

DIY Herringbone Plywood Table

DIY Herringbone Plywood Table

OSO DIY created this stunning coffee table using baltic birch plywood for its construction. But rather than attempt to hide the layers of the wood, he built it to show off its endgrain in a beautiful herringbone pattern. We really love the way the grain looks on the edges and the legs.

As a tribute to the 50th anniversary of NASA’s historic Apollo 11 moon landing, LEGO created a life-size model of one of the mission’s astronauts using about 30,000 bricks.

DIY Plywood Stack Coffee Table

Realtime 8K

Photographer Roman De Giuli is an expert at shooting macro images of colorful fluids for artistic effect. Most of his clips feature multiple shots, but this one is simply a 3-minute video of a single fluid, working all on its own to create visual magic.
