Sashimono Woodworking - Japanese techniques
« on: June 17, 2016, 10:34 PM »
Nice video on Japanese joinery and wood choices for making furniture, boxes and cabinets.
Beautiful joinery, interesting techniques for visual appeal and wonderful craftsmanship.
For example, at around 21 minutes, they talk about Mulberry being finished by rubbing leaves on it to bring out the grain.

No Surfix.  No Dominos.  No fasteners.  No Electricity.  But some amazing techniques and work!

looks cool, but i have no patience and need power tools to feel manly.
When youre feeling depressed just treat yourself to a systainer even if its a mini systainer its ok.

That sort of slow and painstaking work would drive me batty, but I really appreciate their skill.

I really enjoyed the video ... thanks [smile]

I love that tradition of planting a tree when a daughter is born, the wood from which will eventually serve to build a bridal chest.  Talk about the circle of life...

Cool stuff.  I can resonate with bringing out the grain of the wood with a high polish.  In general I hate sanding, but sometimes I will wet sand an oil finish to 2000 just to get the shimmering effect from the wood shown toward the end of the video.

I wish it was easier to wet sand with power sanders!

Hi!

Incredibly amazing, I don't think I could ever reach this level of precision in anything I do. Thank you for sharing this fantastic video!

I really like the Japanese for their very passionate approaches to almost everything they make/do.

Kind regards,
Oliver

Kev, how will you ever know if you can do them justice, if you don't hit the buy button.  Come on you know you want to!

Same sentiments exactly!

I respect the skill, but for me a significant part of the pleasure is seeing things move along at a nice pace, feeling like I'm making progress. It's the same as mowing my lawn, I like the smell of freshly cut grass and the aesthetics and uniformity of the cut blades. But I never have any desire to do it with a scythe over my mower!

Buy them ala-cart, if a use arises. You cost me money though. They are nice.
