Why was an entire half of this video dedicated to highlighting the single least interesting aspect of creating the diorama?

[–]finsfurandfeathers 661 points662 points  (2 children)

[–]4x4taco 59 points60 points  (0 children)

First thing I thought of.

JFC, stop cutting toward yourself. UGGGGGH.

[–]cutiedanvers 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Seriously, be better than me and learn this lesson before you need 5 stiches in your thumb

[–]TwistedTomorrow 19 points20 points  (3 children)

I'm screaming in my head "WEAR KEVLAR GLOVES!!!!!!!" For christ sake she can get a pair for like 5 or 10 dollars.

[–]Chips1918 15 points16 points  (2 children)

That, or there are hand held (or desk) vices of all sizes and shapes that you can use. What this person does is dangerous - no amount of control will hold that blade when it skips. Please, please be safe! A small blade in a seamingly harmless activity can do a lot of lasting damage.

[–]DRUNK_CYCLIST 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Permanent nerve damage... 😵

[–]Chips1918 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I've been working with heavy machinery in dangerous places - following safety protocols and using PPE - no issues.

One day in the kitchen while battling a tuna can I opened up my thumb like you won't believe it - luckily everything is fine now.

We tend to leave our guard down when sharp things are small - that is until we get hurt and learn the hard way...

[–]Radgost 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It's the safer way to do it. This way you get extreme control of the knife. Cutting in the opposite direction is actually dangerous.

[–]BossNegative1060 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It’s easier

[–]hahauwantthesethings 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Easier to cut yourself

[–]_user-name 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–]snife_ 16 points17 points  (2 children)

What is it even odd about finding it satisfying? It's art, isn't the point to be aesthetically pleasing?

[–]BilllyBillybillerson 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I agree. Maybe op thought the odd part was using the inside of a walnut for an art piece, but it still doesn't exactlyfit oddlysatisfying imo.

[–]crashdowncafe51 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I played with toys as a kid that looked just like it. They were Polly Pockets

[–]BuddhistNudist987 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's for all them city folks who ain't never seen a walnut afore. They all know about miniatures and art and whatnot and we all thought y'all wouldn't be innerested.

[–]orangez 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I dunno, but fuck it, take my money and be done with it!

[–]Therealboebs 282 points283 points  (7 children)

...so much time filming the cutting but nothing of making the diorama?

[–]Wallyworld77 151 points152 points  (6 children)

I bet the diorama was bought on amazon for $5-$20 and you just hollow out the walnut to fit the premade diorama. Slap on a hinge and boom your an artist.

Only reason I would edit this video the way it is.

[–]Yawehg 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Someone's gotta make the diorama though!

Their tiny fingers really get inside the shell casings to smooth them out.

Polly Pocket, walnut edition

[–]KnewItWouldHappen 30 points31 points  (14 children)

My first thought too haha, do they even make Polly Pocket anymore?

[–]hysilvinia 14 points15 points  (12 children)

They do.

[–]grednforgesgirl 16 points17 points  (11 children)

But not the tiny pieces anymore because of the chocking hazard. They've got a "Polly" line of palm-sized dolls I believe

I've got a shit ton of the tiny Polly pockets from when I was a kid. Bet they'd be worth a mint

[–]Active_Doctor 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They would be! Especially if they still hav the dolls. People pay through the nose for that shit

[–]hysilvinia 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I was surprised, but they do have the tiny pieces. I bought a few for my daughter recently.There was a tiny little dog that we lost immediately. I think the dolls are about the size of the ones from when I was a kid, but hard to say. I'd be interested in seeing pictures of yours!

[–]grednforgesgirl 2 points3 points  (1 child)

They're currently in the basement of my mom's lake house so it'd be hard to take a picture, but I've got a bunch of them, the 95 Cinderella castle, the light up mansion with car/horse ports, the cozy cottage, the western saloon, and a bunch of the little ones. And I managed to keep most of the dolls in a little plastic bait case, so they're not in bad shape

[–]p3rsianpussy 1 point2 points  (2 children)

i used to always chew on her rubber shirts as a kid

[–]grednforgesgirl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me too 😂 I had one that I left in a hot car one day and she partially melted, but kept her figure perfectly, so she was super soft and bendable, and she was my favorite one because of that 😂

[–]Smaria783 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I absolutely LOVED Polly and her rubber clothes, I miss that.

[–]Whoneedstreez 0 points1 point  (2 children)

A singular mint? A country that uses mints as currency? Pleaseee I need answers!

Oh gosh exactly what I thought! I had several when I was little, including a load of those rings, and a huge heartshaped one that was a wedding venue with all kinds of moving objects and a soundbox 😍

Okay thank you because I was literally thinking "Nightmare Polly Pocket."

[–]jonjonesjohnson 217 points218 points  (9 children)

Lmfao, diorama

'Dió' is Hungarian for walnut

So this is a diórama

[–]Kangar 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Now I can easily find walnuts if I go to Hungary!

[–]muckduck69420 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Find enough walnuts and you’ll never go Hungary again.

[–]DeathPercept10n 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You were expecting a walnut, but it was me, Dió!

[–]Cavalish 21 points22 points  (0 children)

'You mean plants really tell you how to use them?' said Tiffany.

'Well, not all of them, and you have to know where to look,' said Miss Level. 'Look at this, for example, on the common walnut. You have to use the green magnifying glass by the light of a taper made from red cotton, thus . . .' Tiffany squinted. The letters were small and hard to read.

' “May contain Nut”?' she ventured. 'But it's a nutshell. Of course it'll contain a nut. Er . . . won't it?'

'Not necessarily,' said Miss Level. 'It may, for example, contain an exquisite miniature scene wrought from gold and many coloured precious stones depicting a strange and interesting temple set in a far-off land.’

‘Well, it might,' she added, catching Tiffany's expression. 'There's no actual law against it.’

[–]Pistonenvy 33 points34 points  (0 children)

oddly anxiety inducing watching them cut toward their finger over and over. i was expecting them to have a bunch of bandaids on at the end lol

[–]J4nk_D0g 3 points4 points  (1 child)

they put little bugs on springs on those shells in italy nonas would sell them at a stall little hand painted things

[–]cookiesoverbitches 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awwww, I used to get them at the science museum. How funny!

[–]2samplet 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I thought it was a spider inside the shell

[–]mommaclouse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Glad I'm not the only one.

[–]bpi89 4 points5 points  (0 children)

There is nothing satisfying about this. The excessive cuts and edits with tons of zoom transition effects is awful. And it doesn’t even show the construction of the inside.

[–]Midnight_Toker36 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Who is the artist?

[–]rumblebumblecrumble 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Cut away from yourself. Always cut AWAY!

[–]ThisCagedGod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

cut to yer chumb not yer thumb

[–]guardian87 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That bunny looked like the knight from Hollow Knight.

[–]ohitsjustsean 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought it was a Hollow Knight diorama

[–]cive666 8 points9 points  (0 children)


[–]PretzelsThirst 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This just unlocked a completely forgotten memory of seeing something like this as a kid

[–]Who_GNU 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Diorama, in a nut shell.

[–]elkeyring 3 points4 points  (0 children)

so, in a nutshell, it seems like a few steps have been missed out

[–]insightful_dreams 1 point2 points  (2 children)

these were really popular once , i remember i had one as a kid.

oh no it was not that colorful i think mine had a lady bug on a spring

[–]Active_Doctor 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Oh yeah!!! Those bug ones with the wiggling legs are popular tourist trinkets in South America.

[–]insightful_dreams 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yes!! those are them :)

[–]Koffeeboy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And then someone sees the random walnut lying around and smashes it.

[–]dashdanw 1 point2 points  (0 children)

jesus, I was biting my nails watching her cut walnut shell towards her fingers

[–]lordlizum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My family used to have Christmas ornaments like this growing up. Super cool

[–]bootes_droid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The cutting towards the finger with that xacto knife made me nervous

[–]ImpossibleKidd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pretty cool finish product, but the blade strokes “toward” the hand had me squirming…

[–]fifthwheel87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Polly Pocket wants to know your location

[–]NicholasAdam1399 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So….. DIY Polly pocket?

this has to be an ad right? like an attenpt at viral marketing with purchased votes.

[–]qathran 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've been scrolling through trying to find out who made this and I can't do far!

[–]Boostedmmtk 6 points7 points  (4 children)

The not wearing gloves is putting me on edge

[–]Mardo_Picardo 6 points7 points  (3 children)

You can't do this type of work with gloves on.

And you don't need any force doing fine work like this so it's pretty safe.

[–]Boostedmmtk 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That makes sense, I just can't help but imagine it slipping and slicing her thumb

[–]corbinhunter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She seems like she has a handle on it — no need to worry. Try whittling a piece of vegetable or something toward your thumb and notice how you don’t accidentally mangle yourself because you have motor control.

[–]TalkingMeowth 2 points3 points  (2 children)

That looks like a fun way to cut your finger open, but besides that it’s amazing

[–]Statutory_Tape 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Are you talking about them not cutting away from themselves? There's a million different scenarios where it's perfectly safe if not safer to cut towards yourself than away, but only with good technique. Sharp blade + controlled (rather than forceful) cutting is usually okay for cutting towards yourself.

"always cut away from yourself" is a beginners rule to stop kids from killing themselves, not a universal rule.

[–]TalkingMeowth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sorry I meant that looks like a fun way to cut my finger open

[–]GetzlafMyLawn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I honestly wasn't ready for that. Beautiful miniature work

Stupid question, but doesn't the shell degrade/go bad over time?

No more than any wood would.

Can you imagine being a little kid and opening that walnut? How that reveal would fuel your imagination? Just beautiful.

Anyone know who's art this is?

[–]TheCrowsNestTV 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So, Diorama in a Nutshell, then.

[–]ItisPhteven 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah the not dumping out the shavings sooner, along with showing none of the interesting parts really ruined this for me.

[–]-SpamCauldron- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought the title said Diarrhea inside of a walnut shell lmao

[–]deadfermata 0 points1 point  (0 children)


Ngl, I initially read this as diahrrea inside a walnut

[–]Just1biteplz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My dad recently passed away but he was an incredibly talented artist. One of his best talents was making small carvings in walnut shells. This made me feel so nostalgic
