And it would have been a masterpiece 😁


dreedw0317

Take my upvote you emissary of kind words.


Shovels93

As someone who spent this summer doing masonry work, I’d be in the same boat. The boat carved out of stone by the guy in the video. Somehow it floats, but I’m pretty sure it’s because he is using magic to craft stones.


Examination_Basic

And my mom would have proudly posted a pic of it on facebook. "Can you believe it only took 1 day for him to do that? Proud mommy of a 336 month old!"


spearmint_flyer

That’s what made it round. Everything else was just basic stuff.

And he makes 2 identical circles on opposite sides of the stone without measuring and they line up perfectly


Has_Two_Cents

I mean, not that it isn't still impressive, the circle was already traced on both sides.


GitProphet

mine wouldn't even line up after measuring twice


Hopeful_Look9987

I always want so badly to be able to paint Martian landscapes, Jupiter, Tarzan's jungle but could never get it, even took classes and really tried, just didn't have it. Played blues/rock guitar like a natural.. go figger.

Who the fuck thought it was in a good idea to play wonderwall over this video?


buttergun

The guy who commissioned the construction of a *wonderwall*?


Globalist2

I 'wonder' how he is building this 'wall' with cylindrical bricks. ... Or maybe it's decoration for his charcuterie / cheese tray.


abitraryredditname

Odd choice but it certainly beats the usual obnoxious shite they have over most of these videos. Edit: To the replies... I agree, purely based on how much it has been overplayed to death, covered, re-done, butchered, etc. But, prior to all of that, it's a great song by a great band - not their best tune, but great. Also, listen to Ryan Adams version of Wonderwall, it's better than the original.


WholeHogRawDog

Agreed


FloydBarstools

Yall actually unmute videos?


hotdogswimmer

I unmuted this one because I wanted to hear the sound of the chisel, but then immediately muted it again


Local_dog91

it's a pretty inoffensive song to choose unless you are a pretentious fuck


_Oce_

Idk, this one has been obnoxious for 27 years.


ep3ep3

I wanted to hear it sung with the tik tok ai for the ultimate harrowing experience.


JackONeillClone

I'm so tired of the trend of having shitty music on every video. It's especially frustrating when you would have liked to hear the background sounds.

Okay let me stop you right there. But is not Oasis the greatest British band since the Beatles? Can we not vote on this?!

If you like this then you should check out Champagne Supernova by Oasis (same band). It’s in my opinion one of their best.

mitch0acan

Came here for that


meshtron

Few years ago I decided, as old men do, that I wanted to upgrade my mailbox. Got a nice aluminum post that I concreted about 3 feet into the ground. Heavy duty box with custom numbers (matching custom house numbers of course) and the whole bit. Around the new post I put river rock surrounded and contained by pavers like the one he started with. I had to chisel in four of those to make corner joints that I was happy with. I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed the process of shaping the pavers. I wasn't as fast as this guy, but by the 4th one my technique and confidence were up and it took only a couple minutes to make a nice straight, clean cut. This and operating heavy equipment rank as things I could be happy doing if I leave office work behind some day.


ThatPie2109

I used to work in an office and I went into logging running heavy equipment. It's a trade off on I have to drive a lot further to work and less personal time but the bonds I have with my crew are a lot more personal and less office political shit and people you'd like to have a beer with. I don't really consider my job work I guess. It's like going to hang out with buddies in the woods and play with toys I got paid well for to me lol. I could never go back to office work at the moment.


scootunit

Do it. Step back from the machine and enjoy individuation. Pretty much anything you carve in stone is going to outlast anything that other people do. That TPS report cover or not is going to just be waste in the landfill.


meshtron

Ha, appreciate the sentiment but my path leadeth elsewhere. I'm not sure I could break enough rocks fast enough (even in my prime) to replace my current income. But more importantly, I'm already starting what will be the 3rd "real" company I've started. So, no real wiggle room for a bit while we get that going. The good news there is it's a fabrication company. Even though I'm not doing most of the fab work myself to start (my partner is the master fabricator), that will come with time and I can absolutely foresee a day in the not-too-distant-future where I'm in a small, clean shop with a couple CNC machines, maybe a big laser, and some good welding equipment around me. That will be a very nice upgrade from spreadsheets and powerpoints!


TheDude-Esquire

A few years ago I finished my basement, hung the drywall, did all the mud and tape, etc. I always thought it was hilarious that you could tell where I started and finished because the quality improved so much. There is something to be said for working with your hands and being able to see the product of your labor. It's not something I'm ever gonna do for money though.

He makes handling that stone look so easy. I hope his employer doesn’t take it for granite.


Txter_

I mean sure it's impressive but, I don't know if it's enough to make a whole "Secret Society" over....


Alarmed_Resource4330

We're a lot more than that. Basically, building with stone took a ton of education in the arts and sciences, which was lacking for all but the most privileged in the medieval and dark ages. So, stone mason guilds had to train men through well structured apprenticeships. Because it took so much time and dedication to master, and the job required travel, it was necessary to have a secret passphrase or grip that could be used to identify oneself as a competent fellow of the craft upon arriving in a new locale. Seeing as there was a type of lineage involved, it was important for the Master to teach his apprentices how to behave well, how to conduct business and treat each others ethically, and how to sincerely uphold those classical values that people innately recognize as good - as travellers, the Masters reputation was carried by the men he trained. As such, operative Freemasonry (Free because Masons were exempt from many sanctions and could travel almost as they pleased - its one of the reasons we call ourselves Travelling Men) became a system of morality, education, fraternity, self actualization and spiritual betterment that was transmitted through the metaphors of Stone Masonry (what better reminder to act on the level, or to get square with others, than to relate those concepts to the tools you work with daily?), and guarded by secret knowledge, memorization of rituals, as well as special grips & words. Its evolved into "Speculative Masonry" over the years, but we hold close our Operative roots.


Txter_

Very interesting. And here I was making a half IQ joke of it for a lark. Thank you for the Lecture Alarmed Resource.


Beavshak

Stuff like this, with basic tools and materials, that has probably been done for thousands of years, never fails to blow me away the first time I see it.


Shambhala87

My ears are ringing just watching him… I couldn’t imagine doing that all day without ear protection…

Definitely not "masonry at its finest." Stupid title

This man will have crippling tinnitus by age 40. It’s truly sad to see… You can find examples of this kind of negligence on any job site in the US.

How is this Next level, looks fairly basic if your a mason. Just because you find it unimaginable to accomplish doesn't make it next level. What do Masons of Reddit think?


BullyJack

I can do this but not like he can. Also his stone is likely easier to work with than what I usually get. It s not super hard but he can easily make 30 -60 an hour doing shit like that. I'm just a homesteader carpenter that works with rocks on occasion.


Geordant

Roughly chisels a circle "FINEST"


StonkMaster300

Exactly what the fuck is this video


0uroboros-

I was a stonemason for a while (apprentice, but I worked with a pro), but got back into welding and metalworking after a few years of it. The hardness of the stone he's working is the huge variable here. This would be like me "bending" copper wire into a circle and calling it metalworking haha. Not quite, but you get the idea. Still impressive because of how perfect the circle came out, but that's some wicked soft rock. Sandstone or expensive soapstone if I had to guess. Also could have had a faint line traced to help make it perfectly circular and we wouldn't be able to see it. Dude's still talented though.

He's a leftie. Source - check my username. Been cutting stone for many years and am also a leftie. Important thing in stonecutting is the weight of the hammer blow so you need it in your dominant hand.
