Carving a Log into a 4’ Shark that SWIMS

Thanks to Bespoke Post for sponsoring this video! New subscribers get a free mystery gift with their first membership purchase — go to and enter code BMGIFT at checkout. We spent 1200 hours carving a shark and engineered it to swim. Spoiler Alert: It worked! I teamed up with Travis from Locomotion Creations and we made something truly one of a kind. I just love how it turned out and the kinetic flowing movement it has. #carving #shark #Kinetic
