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….February 7, 2014 at 10:32 pm #87867
Have you tried the Woodworkers Guild of America with George Von Driska?
Fine Woodworking mag has a lot too.
By the way, thanks for the link.February 7, 2014 at 10:38 pm #87869February 8, 2014 at 2:55 pm #88145
Do they own power tools?February 8, 2014 at 6:46 pm #88193

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.February 8, 2014 at 6:57 pm #88195

Ilike that video. It is amazing to see how effortlessly they work the hand tools. I envy that ability to work without power tools.0February 10, 2014 at 7:02 pm #88966
I wonder what kind of wood they use, it seems to cut easilyJanuary 20, 2015 at 9:21 am #257043
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.January 20, 2015 at 10:19 am #257077
Got to love using her leg as a clamp to hold work from moving.
Always willing to learn .January 20, 2015 at 10:29 am #257085

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 funnyJanuary 20, 2015 at 10:59 am #257104
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.January 20, 2015 at 6:02 pm #257250

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.January 20, 2015 at 6:27 pm #257267
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?January 20, 2015 at 6:31 pm #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.January 20, 2015 at 7:03 pm #257286
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.
