The Golden Section Explained by Walt Disney

Tonight while visiting a woodworking forum I host called The Burl, I was reading a post about a member who was asking people if they use the Golden Section 1.618 to design their furniture. One of our members, JerryPacMan1, posted a YouTube video by Disney called “Donald in Mathmagic Land”. Made during the 1950’s, this video explains the golden ratio in a very simplistic way that is easy to understand. The golden section portion start around the 7:00 mark, but the entire film is worth watching. Enjoy!
