Watch a backyard ice rink get made in time-lapse

(CBS News)  We just showed you some winter-time antics in the form of smashing snowmen as an art form. So let's go ahead and keep the seasonal fun going with another timely and fun clip very fitting for January: watch a backyard ice rink get made in time-lapse with the video above.

The impressive project of obvious passion and dedication was created by Matt Vriesema and posted by Vimeo user Four Winds who writes:

More than 28,000 individual photos combine to follow the construction of the ultimate backyard ice rink located outside Chicago, Illinois. Five days of labor, 15,000 gallons of water and sub-freezing temperatures. Shot entirely with a GoPro Hero2 using a Steadicam Smoothee rig and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro. The song is "Tribulations" by LCD Soundsystem
