You don’t need to be an expert in wood turning to understand that turning a simple spindle doesn’t require huge expertise. So how come this video has almost 4 million views?

The spindle is not the final product, it’s what this guy does with it that makes this one of the most satisfying videos on YouTube. The tree sculptures, called Spanbäumes (which translates to “spanning trees”), range in size from about two to 39 inches.
The video shows how a woodworker created beautiful tree sculptures using only a piece of wood, a chisel, and expert precision.
Using an extremely sharp chisel he shaves little wood curls off the side of his turned piece and makes one of a kind art work that would look incredible on anyone’s mantle.The way he controls his tool and the fact that every curl is just the right shape blow my mind.
