We found the 5 most amazing DIY projects in Europe!
What is The Amazing Making Of?
The Amazing Making Of is a web series depicting DIYers who have started amazing, wild projects.
The idea is to share the stories of those incredible makers, doers, inventors, and creators across 5 European countries by giving them the visibility that they deserve. We held a competition throughout June to find these makers and we had so many incredible applications! Each country has as winner who will receive £5,000 towards tools and materials for their project, and they will become the star of their own episode later this year (don’t miss out and subscribe to our YouTube channel here!)– amazing, right?!
UK WINNER – Gavin Munro
Designer & artist, Gavin Munro trains trees to grow in a certain way allowing him to grow solid and unique furniture (chairs, tables, lamps, etc.). Each tree takes 4 to 6 years to grow. It’s nature’s very own 3D printer!
Make sure to follow our YouTube Channel to be the first to know about Gavin’s inspirations, method and difficulties regarding his work when his episode airs!
ITALY WINNER – Attilio and Elena Mileto
This couple discovered a house on Lake Maggiore and fell in love with it!

They are currently working on recovering this mechnism by using modern materials
