OT: A guy builds something in his shop

Metal content: engine parts, control cables Wood content: wings and fuselage
We all like to build things in our shops, some shops are big, and some shops are small. We work from varied amounts of skill and time, and the projects we make vary from the simple to the complex.
But building an airplane from scratch, that, for me at least, would be a pretty big feat. And doing it mainly without one's right hand, well, you can judge for yourself:

(note: there's a video on the page of the thing he built)

Someone on the web has to have closeup shots of that plane, it'd be worth finding them.

Wow, that is quite the project. I have to admire the guys that make home builts. Looks like a nice flight too.
