I saw that video before. Pretty amazing. In some parts of the world it can be very difficult to obtain replacement reeds. In the video the guy is making a pretty ordinary accordion reed, but I am already dreading the moment one of the reeds breaks on my AKKO bayan. If I can actually go to the hardware store, buy a spatula and turn it into a replacement reed in say a day of hard work, that sure beats sending the entire reed plate to Voronez, Russia, to get it repaired in maybe two months or so. I truly love my bayan, but I do keep a backup accordion just in case disaster strikes.
