Time-lapse video of wood being shaved down one layer at a time

Keith Skretch combined Ennio Morricone, a sander, a camera, and infinite patience to create this incredible video.
To create this strata-cut animation, I planed down a block of wood one layer at a time, photographing it at each pass. The painstaking process revealed a hidden life and motion in the seemingly static grain of the wood, even as the wood itself was reduced to a mound of sawdust.

Yep, it's called "Waves of Grain."
