The Making of a Soulcraft

Here’s another video I really like because it shows a skilled craftsman doing machining, metal fabrication and welding.  Those are skills that I’m trying to get better at so I’m always interested in seeing how someone with much more experience does it and the tools they use.  This beautifully shot and well edited video has almost no dialog.  It just shows Sean Walling, the owner of Soulcraft Bikes, building a custom handcrafted bicycle frame.

    This is a great video, thank you for posting! The video quality is very high, and the craftsmanship of the machinist is outstanding. I agree with you, I am kind of a visual learner at times and when I want to take my skills to the next level sometimes there is no better way than watching a master of the craft.

    Thanks for Sharing!

    He’s obviously been doing it a long time. Those fixtures are all custom made, and probably took a lot longer to build than a bike frame.
