Check out: John Merritt’s incredible wood carvings

I found this video today thanks to a tweet from Sam Bosma and it’s incredible. John Merritt has been carving wood for 50 years, and in the video he shows off things he’s made: interlinking chains (including one out of a toothpick), trapped balls, working scissors and more — all carved from single pieces of wood. And it ends on a marvelously sweet note as well. Inspiring!
