The man who has built tiny ships inside of bottles for 60 years

Check out this short film about Ray Gascoigne who builds those incredibly detailed ships that you see housed inside of bottles. In this well-made short film, he talks a bit about the process of making his extraordinary models. Here's a craftsman with a lot of patience, ingenuity, and a love for what he does.

From the video description:

Ray Gascoigne has been around boats his whole life, as a shipwright, a merchant sailor, and now as a ship builder on the smallest dry dock there is: a bottle. This short film by Smith Journal and Melbourne-based production studio Commoner picks through the wood chips to tell the story of a craft honed over 60 years, and the man behind it. A step-by-step account of the process was featured in Smith Journal volume six.

Here is where you can buy the journal with the article that features Ray Jascoigne.
