from August, woodworker John Furniss shows off an in-progress piece in his shop. It’s a big, gorgeous bowl, about 11 inches wide, into which he’s layered alternating pieces of yellowheart and black walnut wood.

As his wife, Anni, films, he turns the bowl on a lathe, carving intricate ridges into the side. A few days later, he’ll share the finished product, oiled up and practically glowing in the sun, with its gorgeous grains on display.

Maybe none of this on its own sounds particularly remarkable to you— is full of creators and artists who share the process that goes into making their work, and much of it is as lovely as this.
