Losing Your Marbles: Wintergatan’s Wondrous Musical Machine

I don’t have the words to describe how wondrous I found this, but I’ll just show you the  videos and see if you agree. This is a real device, made by the musician, who I believe to be Martin “MacGuyver” Molin, but am still checking on that one. The set of skills he has in the woodshop is amazing all by itself. See the “making of” videos below for more on that.

Check out Wintergatan for more about the band.

Here’s the end-product video, after 14 months of work in the woodshop. I’ve done enough woodworking to know that the problem-solving alone for this project is staggering, let alone the amazing creative spark to come up with the design in the first place. Amazing.


 

And here are the “building of” videos (7 of them):
