Waves of Grain, A Stop-Motion Animation Featuring of Layers of Wood Being Stripped Away by a Planer

“Waves of Grain” is an experimental short animation by video designer Keith Skretch featuring a wood planer stripping away layers from a block of wood with photographs being taken after each pass. The resulting animation adds a surprising element of movement to the ever-changing wood grain.

Previously we wrote about an animation that achieved a similar effect with a grinding machine.
