    I watch quite a few woodworking videos on youtube – The Wood whisperer, woodwork web, and a couple others. I was browsing through youtube and started watching these Japanese woodworking videos and now I am addicted to them….

    Do they own power tools?

    I would assume so… I just like to watch traditional woodworking videos; watching him work on the floor like that really makes the design of the pull cut style of Japanese saws and planes.

    Ilike that video. It is amazing to see how effortlessly they work the hand tools. I envy that ability to work without power tools.0

    I wonder what kind of wood they use, it seems to cut easily

    I don’t think I could work on the floor would have a hard time getting up. It is amazing how they are not in a big rush, over here it’s all about quickness to save dollars.

    Always willing to learn .

    Now that’s some quality craftsmanship right there, Notice how she pulls the plane at an angle to get the slicing affect? She knows what she’s doing, But she talks funny

    I know that Japan used to import a lot of redwood, which would be pretty easy to work with.

    And I think pulling is easier than pushing the planes, same with their saws.

    I have Japanese style saws and a couple planes – cutting on a pull stroke is a lot easier than cutting on the push stroke. I imagine they developed that method because they do so much of their work on the floor – a push cut hand saw would be tough while sitting.

    I’ve been looking at the saws on lee valley and will get one soon, but i don’t think I ever seen a pull plane for sale. Where did you find yours Chad?

    #257271

    I commented on FOG a few days ago about a similar video being shown. These craftsman are unbelievable and it begs to show how a Pagoda in Japan, in a humid area, made of wood, can stand for over a THOUSAND years. Simply amazing.

    I think that the first several years of an apprenticeship is spent sharpening until you get it perfect. They can do some amazing things with a few hand tools and the way they hold work. Cool stuff to watch.
