From Timber To Tide is a short documentary from Pixillion that profiles Ben Harris, a traditional wooden boat builder in Cornwall, UK. In the doc, Harris, who says that his first word was “log,” reflects on how he acquired his woodworking skills through the years and talks about the experience of taking something that he built by hand out onto the water and sailing it across the sea.
