A fascinating video of how Japanese wooden dolls are made by hand

The video below documents a Japanese man making a traditional wooden doll by hand in his workshop. In an industrialized world, the production of toys may not seem like anything special, but this process is romantic and mesmerizing.

First, you see the craftsman gracefully shaving away layers of wood on the lathe with precision. The form is sanded, finished and then decorative red paint is added using a shockingly confident hand. The laborious doll-making process is documented beautifully and will leave you intrigued, with a deeper appreciation for handmade objects.
