Master Woofcrafter Creates Fully-functional Tools Entirely Out Of Wood

The Smithsonian Institute has lavished praise on Ernest "Mooney" Warther's intricate, wood-carved engineering feats. The Smithsonian went so far as to declare his carvings "priceless works of art". It looks like the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree in this family, as his son David Warther follows closely in his footsteps. David was only six when he picked up a piece of wood in his dad's workshop and set about carving a ship. Since then, he has carved more than 80 vessels, including Viking-era ships and the Mayflower. In this video, David shows how to carve the infamous pliers, made with only 10 cuts, given to all children who visit the Warther Museum in Dover, Ohio.
