From selecting the tree to freezing the popsicle. If you don't like the announcing in German just turn the sound down.

Interesting, thanks for sharing. The first part of the process is similar to how the veneer for plywood is made.

Wish I knew German, would love the receipt of the popsicle too :) So much work put into such a small detail

There are a number of really cool videos about making things from the same outfit. How nutcrackers are made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDXzd1msvwg, glass Christmas ornaments, An archaic form of wood turning called Reifendreher. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoRJT9L-kf8&t=86s Some are very funny even if you don't understand German. I grew up with all my grandparents speaking Pennsylvania Dutch, which is a peasant dialect of German. I took German in High school figuring, I was already part way there. it really did not help much. There are dozens of German wood turning videos and those guys are masters with a skew chisel. I am actually a member at a German muzzle loading forum. I can read most of what it posted, but I seldom post anything. One member posted something about a cap and ball revolver which was not true and I simply responded "Stiermist" Which is a literal German equivalent for bull sh&$. They howled with laughter over that. I did not think it was funny, but they sure did.

Tap the video, select "CC" for closed captioning. Tap the setting icon and select English translation. automatic captioning is generally poor and this probably suffers in translation also but it gives an idea of what's being said
