The craft of furniture making is captured beautifully in this video filmed by Dutch filmmaker Juriaan Booij at the Portugal-based factory of the luxury woodworking firm De La Espada.

From the raw lumber being measured, ripped and cut to the assembled finished furniture pieces, every arresting angle in this short film takes the viewer through not only the process but the art fine furniture making.

Founded in 1993 by Fatima De La Espada and Luis De Oliveira, De La Espada specializes and sells high-end hand crafted contemporary furniture in retail stores in London and New York.
