Woodworking Video Art: Brian Grabski, Designed & Made

Posted by Bill Esler | Posted: 11/13/2012 5:23PM


Brian Grabski, master wood craftsman at Designed and Made Custom Woodwork, Minneapolis, has produced a film with colleagues that raises contemporary woodworking video to a level of art on a parallel with the best photography, and finest examples of woodcraft itself. Grabski's custom interiors and one-of-a-kind furniture have been featured at WoodworkingNetwork.  Grabski worked summers in cabinet shops during high school, and while earning a business degree at the University of Colorado. After graduation in 2005, he opened his one-man shop in Minneapolis,

I saw Designed and Made’s video, from the newsletter link. I t was very nicely done. You might enjoy a woodworking video I did last year called “Phoebe’s Table Dance at Saturn Design”. It is posted in HD on both YouTube and Vimeo. The video is at least mildly amusing and the table is a truly singular design. http://youtu.be/VZxskh6d_Ec
