It’s impossible to turn on a TV, browse social media, or do anything other than hide inside a dark cave without getting stressed out these days. When it comes to relaxation, you need all the help you can get, and surprisingly, watching this magnificently bearded woodworker turn a log into a perfect wooden bowl might actually help you unclench your fists.

Pat Laperrière mostly relies on a spinning lathe to strip away the log’s bark, carve out the bowl’s shape, and then give it a perfectly polished finish. At 15 minutes long, this video is a condensed version of the process, which is unfortunate, because we could easily use a full 24 hours of this to soothe away our rage.
