    Beyond interesting. Fascinating.
    Actually, there is a 'translate' button there.
    His translation is pretty literal and takes some effort to read but still better than the traditional symbols.

    I didn't find the translate button that Franks mentions, but what do they do exactly? Just plane those boards dead flat by hand in order show their beatiful grain to sell them? Most problaby for table tops I guess, or not?

    I didn't see any prices that I could recognize though, maybe it is better this way so I don't have a heart attack
    Best regards,

    Wow! I did see them using a power planer in a few of the pics, but that' some amasing handwork it looks like.
